Translation of Gemstones (what is aqeeq?)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this topic has been discussed earlier.

I am looking to buy an aqiq/aqeeq stone via ebay. But which stone is it actually, someone translate it as agate and others as carnelian. I find carnelian to look like aqiq much more than agate's do.. Anyone knows the answer to this please?

eBay - Agate: http://jewelry.shop.ebay.com/items/Agate_?...d=p3286.c0.m282

eBay - Carnelian: http://jewelry.shop.ebay.com/items/Carneli...d=p3286.c0.m282

Wikipedia - Agate: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agate

Wikipedia - Carnelian: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agate

I've been confused about this translation for quite a while so really appreciate if someone could clear things up.

Why Aqiq yemeni?

Dont know the details but it is said that others don't have the same effects. Same as Firoza (Turquoise) should be from Neshabur (Iran).

See the add in this photo. It says Firoza Neshabur and Aqiq Yemeni:

Ok, thanks. I guess the aqiq makes sense regarding to its location having to be Yemen. But what about stones like Ruby (yakoot), diamond (almaz) and sapphire?
