The main areas include Africa, Asia, Brazil, Egypt, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Nepal, and the USA. The name Agate comes from the river Achetes in Sicily, where it was first noted in ancient times. Agates have been discovered with Neolithic artifacts and were used before 3000 BC. No doubt, it is because of their rich colors and striking beauty that they were used for jewelry making in ancient India.
