Agate "Turitelle" is a "protective" stone - The Agate takes its name from the
river Akhatês, 
today the Dirillo, in the south of Sicily, where it was in abundance.
It is the Greek philosopher Theophrastus who gave him his name.

Present in many parts of the world and rich in its beautiful colors,it was used as 
early as Antiquity: in Egypt and Mesopotamia, among the Hebrews, as well as by 
the peoples of the Indus Valley and then the Greeks and the Romans. 
They made jewels and ornaments, like vases, or cult objects. Among the Celts, 
she is associated with Ceridwen, goddess of fertility and death. 
Pliny the Elder mentions in his book "Natural History" Agate Pyrrhus, which 
would have represented, thanks to the natural drawing of its colors, 
Apollo playing the lyre as well as the nine Muses ...
