Red Agate Floral Brooch

The Red Agate Floral Brooch is a classic, Victorian-era agate original set in a decorative floral oval brooch design


The Red Agate Floral Brooch is a classic, Victorian-era brooch of red banded agate set in a floral motif frame. Agate stone pins flourished in Victorian-era Scotland. Collectors seek them out for the colors, patterns, and unusual frames. The piece is not hallmarked, which is not unusual for locally made pins of this era. The pin measures a very large 2.5 inches across. A truly unique treasure with an excellent example of Scotland’s best agate.

Scottish Agate

One of the most prized stones in antique Scottish jewelry making, agate is a beautiful semi-precious gem with distinct layers of colors and designs. Hues can range from browns and golds to reds, whites and even blues. Many classic Scottish kilt pins and women’s accessories will feature multiple colors of agate set in complementary patterns. In ancient times, early Caledonians collected the stones and used them for luck and protection. Many of the best specimens originate from the fields and beaches of Scotland’s eastern coast — areas Angus, Fife, Ayr and Burn-Anne.
