Unlike other common types of agate, red agate locally known as Nanhong agate is extremely rare and thus very precious, It can only be found today in China, especially in Yunnan and Sichuan province. Nanhong agate has been known since Western Han Dynasty (200 BC) and was very appreciated in royal courts under Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), where it was used to carve jewelry and decorative objects. Nanhong Agate is particularly cherished because of its intense red, a colour traditionally regarded as symbol of prosperity in Chinese culture.
Today, jade and agate have become increasingly rare due to the progressive exhaustion of sources.

Care instructions: Red Agate is very delicate. Do not rub against hard surfaces, keep away from chemicals to avoid corrosion and avoid continuous exposure to sunlight. Wipe it with a soft cloth after wearing and store it in a box. To remove sturdier stains, use soft brush with light soap and water. As jade naturally contains water, keep it in an area of humidity to prevent over-drying.
