I Don't Even Know What Agate Is But It's My New Favorite Home Decor Trend

I just got these agate bookends in purple and they are seriously making my room. Not going to lie, I tried looking up what exactly agate is for the purpose of this article, but didn’t feel like going back to middle school science class. What I do understand is that agate home decor is really, really pretty. After seeing the trend all over blogs and Anthropologie, I finally decided to get something for myself made from this crystal rock. I landed on bookends, but found a ton of other items, from coasters and platters to lamps and jewelry boxes. Click the slideshow to see all of our agate finds if you’re into this trend too!
