PRODUCT STORY
Bring beauty and a piece of history to your desktop with this intriguing paperweight that is formed from molten lava that has cooled over 80 million years. Called agate, this ancient stone harvested from Brazil has prompted centuries of cultural intrigue. The ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Greeks all held the beliefs that agate possesses the power to protect its owners from evil and danger, that it calms during times of stress, and that it helps to develop inner strength and courage.

Like the eruption responsible for its formation, each pyramidal paperweight contains spectacular bands of translucent and opaque color and microcosmic mineral explosions to soothe workday woes and offer a contemplative focal point in the office. Agate from Brazil. Shaped by artisans in the USA.

The beautiful rocks these paperweights are made of are shaped by nature in Brazil, but the finished pyramids are shaped by artisans in the USA. Will you make a point to add some color to your desk with this design?

I don't care for the hard edges and the colors look cheesey.

I like them so I gave them a thumbs-up, but I probably wouldn't buy them, honestly, because I don't know anyone who uses paperweights and most people I give to are trying to clear their workspaces.

I don't need a paperweight-but I would buy these-they're beautiful and I've been attached to 'crystals' since a kid.

fake-colored stones in unnatural shapes are not appealing

Does anybody even use paperweights anymore? These are lovely rocks.

These are tooooo small to be effective as a paperweight! If they were larger, they would be a viable choice as a gift I'd give. They have an interesting provenance and would look classy on a stack of books in a library.

Pretty, but don't like the sharp edges.
