A bangle bracelet is a rigid, ring-shaped bracelet usually made without a clasp so as to slip over the hand, but sometimes having a hinged opening and a clasp. Swarovski bangles are bracelets made with many of their own distinctive crystal shapes and beads incorporated into a bangle design. These unique Swarovski crystal shapes and beads can be purchased at jewelry supply companies so that you can design and create your own bangle bracelets.
Fire agate is a gemstone of the quartz family, which is a naturally occurring mineral found in the earth. It is most commonly mined in parts of Mexico and the southwestern United States (California and Arizona to be precise). What sets this gemstone apart from other types of agate or quartz is the way it emits rainbow-like color when exposed to light or at various angles. It seems to have a fiery effect, a quality that gives it the name of fire agate.
