Made from clear acrylic with chrome handles, this chic piece of functional art will be prized showpiece at any social gathering.

Agate is a semiprecious stone formed deep under the earth when silica-laden groundwater passes through air pockets in cooling lava. The ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greeks all held the belief that agate possessed the power to protect its owners from evil and danger, and that it also produced delightful dreams. Stone quarried in Brazil; tray made in China.
