80 Million Years in the Making

Formed when silica-laden groundwater passes through air pockets in cooling lava, agate is an exceptionally unique mineral that was once thought to protect its owners from danger and even produce delightful dreams. These sets are made in the USA with agate from southern Brazil, and while they may not bring you any dreams, they will bring beautiful nature and warmth into your home. Designed by Anna Rabinowicz.

Take a studio tour and see where these coasters were designed.

“Being a designer means looking closely at the world around us for inspiration and realizing that the things around us are really magical.”

A fragment of a shell, a colorful stone, a peculiar gourd—Anna Rabinowicz's creative process often begins with objects found on her trips to Brazil. "These pieces sit on my desk for weeks, sometimes months, while I study them and think about what they might become. Then I begin to sketch and build models; each comes to life as inspiration for a new piece," she says.

After studying Industrial Design at the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, Anna received her masters degree in Design and Engineering from Stanford University. Her design company explores the use of natural, traditional materials and their juxtaposition with high-tech manufacturing techniques.

These coasters are beautiful. I live in a very small space, so I like to keep it clear of clutter. Without strictly decorative objects around, it's nice to have useful things that also add some interest. I love that these are a natural product, no two sets are alike (I got two, and they are very different but complimentary). They seem to be durable and are easily cleaned. The first set had one coaster with a defect, and customer service was the absolute best! I couldn't be happier!

    I have a number of marble surfaces that require protection. These natural agate coasters look great on white marble.

        My father-in-law is hard to buy for but loves rocks. He is 80 years old and when he opened them he was brought to tears.

        A couple are pretty whereas a couple are not as pretty. I think they are a little pricey for what you get and they should be a little thicker for the price that I paid.

              My Mom said that she really likes the coasters and that she had set them up on her work desk and coffee table right after opening the gift. I haven't seen the coasters myself but since my Mom is happy then I am happy with the purchase.
