In ancient times Moss Agate was known as the gardener's talisman.

Moss Agate has also been known as "Mocha stone" after the Arabian city of Mocha in Yemen. According to Arabic traditions, the stone gives its wearer the ability to distinguish between true and untrue friends.

As a lucky charm, Moss Agate was particularly popular with people who were gambling.

The crystal has only recently become popular with us due to its powerful healing properties.
