No matter what other mineral specimens and gemstones your store sells, wholesale agates should be a part of the mix. In fact, they may be the most often-sold mineral specimens in the world. For rock and souvenir shops, Brazilian agate is the most popular of all wholesale agates. Rock shop owners tend to stick with what sells - including red, black, white, agate slabs and agate slices, however, there are dozens of different gemstone varieties to choose from.

Each of the agate slabs found in lapidary stores are found in Brazil. In order for it to show its "true colors" and texture, it must be properly polished. However, most of the retail-quality agate gemstone rocks have a commercial polish when they arrive at the store. The advantage of buying wholesale from a reputable supplier is that you can trust the rocks to be delivered in top-quality condition.

Wholesale agates are a form of chalcedony, which is a semiprecious silica mineral that varies in transparency and color. It is found throughout the world, but is heavily concentrated in Brazil, Uruguay and several Northwestern US states. Essentially, agate is a quartz rock, and much of it is artificially dyed to make it more interesting and colorful.

Some interesting varieties of wholesale agate include blue lace, cloud, eye, fire, onyx, Oregon snakeskin, Mexican lace and a host of other names. To see the full collection of agates, it almost necessary to buy a bag of agate rocks look at them at your leisure. Then you can decide which colors will be the best sellers among your customers.

How can I make an agate slice into a necklace?

I have a beautiful pink slice of agate that I would like to make a necklace out of, but I don't know how to make it into a pendant. I tried drilling a hole in it but the stone was too hard. Maybe I'm not doing something right? I also thought about glueing a hook to it, but don't know what kind of glue would stick well to the smooth surface. I have seen agate slice necklaces all over the web, so there must be a way to do it. Any ideas?

Diamond bit for your drill will put a hole in it. But I wouldn't do that.

I would cage the aggie slice! There are wire wrapping techniques that have the very fine wire meshed around the edges of sliced rocks. This is what I would do for this aggie slice!

You Tube has some very good instructional videos on how to do these things, and your local bead or crafting outlet should have books on how to do it also.

I am jealous that you have a pink aggie to make into a necklace!!
