AGATE: Agate stones are banded in stripes or layers and part of the Chalcedony family. Agate is the most popular and most varied Chalcedony.
Because of that variety, Agate has proven consistently popular over the centuries. Both for its potential healing and spiritual value, as much as its distinctive beauty.
Understanding this stone’s meaning as a healing stone with all-around mystical properties dates back to the beginnings of human history.
The stones are quite beautiful to look at and handle. They also seem to glitter in the light, owing to the inclusion of small quartz-like particles.
Agate occurs in many varieties, each with its unique meaning, and the mystical appeal of Agate stones is mainly because they are very stable crystals. They are all grounding stones and have a powerful connection to the energies of Mother Earth.
Agate stones were formed by the laying down of microscopic quartz fragments in bands, hence the variety in their appearance and colors.
They have long been revered for their ability to bring about a balance between the physical, emotional, and mental planes. When you find your own special Agate stone, you can be sure that it is perfectly unique.
Its name is derived from the place where it was first found in the Achates River in Sicily. Varieties of Agate can be found all over the world, and it remains a popular stone to this day.
