Crab Fire Agate has become one of the most popular types of Agates to be used in fashion jewelry. A unique variant of Agates, the Crab Fire Agate resembles a crab's shell cracked into numerous pieces and lit with a glowing light from deep within. Red Crab Fire Agate, in particular, has amazing patterns and true to its name, seems to be lit with a fire. Like all gemstones, this Agate also owes its beauty to its process of formation. Agates are chalcedonies and are formed in the air pockets trapped in rapidly cooling lava from the interaction of the alkali that enters the air pockets and the iron in the surrounding rock. An Agate is labeled as Crab Fire Agate, once it has been heated to crack its shell and enhance its color. Agate is often associated with love, strength, courage, healing, protection, and longevity. Perhaps, this was the reason ancient times saw the use of Agate as an amulet or talisman. As a healing stone, Agate is believed to protect from fever, quench thirst, and cure insomnia. While there are some who buy Agate jewelry just for good luck, others fall for the inner glow of these cracked beads and advantage from its powers as well.
