Agate would relieve stomach ailments, blue sapphire would cure eye diseases and protect against accidents, ruby would act as an antidote against all poisons, etc. This belief stems from the fact that therapeutic virtues have almost always been attributed to any rare and expensive product: this was the case with coffee and tea when they were introduced in Europe.
