Banded agate has been prized since ancient times in making jewelry.  Whether carving it in cameos creating a lighter layer over a darker base or as in ancient trade beads  highlighting the striping effect which occur when carved perpendicular to the contrasting layers.  And this lovely bracelet (circa 1960s) is a great example of natural elements crafted to be worn in a decorative way.  There is a nice weight to this bracelet and it looks wonderful by itself, or layered with other bangles.
