Agates were often claimed to have magical properties. A 13th century manuscript notes 'a lion or an archer engraved on a Jasper, gives help against poison and cures from fever. A bull engraved on a Prase ( Chrysoprase ) is said to give aid against evil spells and to procure the favour of magistrates'.
