Make a conversational splash with these showstopper One-of-a-Kind Agate Coasters. Made of genuine agate—a semiprecious stone that the ancients believed would guard against danger—the One-of-a-Kind Agate Coasters for each set are selected for their shape, pattern and translucency and enhanced to maximize their rich colors. Happily, each will vary in size, shape and color, making your set truly unique. Assembled in the U.S.A. with rubber feet on the underside.
Showcasing the dramatic concentric color bands for which agate is prized, these One-of-a-Kind Agate Coasters recall agate specimens displayed in our National Museum of Natural History’s Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals.
Approx. 4.5"dia. Set of 4.

"This set of dyed agates is an unfortunate product that took natural beauty and made it look like cheap plastic. I do not suggest that anyone buy this set of turkeys."

"I bought the 4 - pack of agate coasters. They were pretty, but I was kind of expecting agates that had less crystal and more sedimentary striped layers. Otherwise everything was great. Easy to use site, secure payment options, and quick delivery. Thank you Smithsonian!"

"The picture of the coasters looked so beautiful, but once I received them, they all looked very bland. The way the agave stones were cut made the coasters look very dark with no contrast to the layers."
