Like A Rock
No more boring white china in your house. Show off your rockin' style with these gorgeous agate plates that are soaked in rich color and natural character.

These brilliantly hued plates look like jewels of the earth. They are vibrant, rich and polished, but still maintain some of their natural rocky exterior. Perfect as trivets, candle plates, or for serving small appetizers. Designed by Anna Rabinowicz. Made in the USA from agate from southern Brazil. Available in blue or purple. Sold individually.
