All about agate…

I’ve been getting more and more obsessed with agate lately, and thought it was about time I gave it some limelight on le blog.  It’s a type of crystal (?!) found in volcanic rock that comes in a crazy range of hues, from oranges, browns and blues through to purples, pinks and reds:

They’re just so beautiful and intricate, no??

So here are a few ideas – whether you opt for a full on wall treatment…

…or incorporate a smaller dose of delish agate, it’s guaranteed to add some earthy sparkle to your space:

I am DYING over those side tables but sadly don’t have a spare $40k lying around…

Which is your fave??

  1. I have one identical with the one on the curtain (I did not know much about that rock until now) as my BF is a fan of rocks. Now seams like a good idea to find someone to make a metal device like that one on the second image to put it on the furniture. Lovely, Elly! From today you are on my blogroll

    Hi dear, you have really thought me something new today! I’ve seen this beautiful crystal before but didn’t know what it was called, love how the different colours meld into each other.
