HOW IT WORKS
By connecting you with the gentle vibrations of the Earth, agate works to stabilize your aura and energy. Just as it takes time for water to settle into the cavities of volcanic and metamorphic rock to create agates striking bands, it works at its own pace to restore bodily energy and enhance mental function. Agate works as a powerful yet gentle stone, soothing, calming, and harmonizing both positive and negative energies.
HOW IT IS FORMED
Agate is a translucent variety of microcrystalline quartz. Occurring in a wide range of colors, agate can be brown, white, red, gray, pink, black, and yellow. The color you see occurs in alternating bands within the agate, which are caused by impurities and minerals such as iron oxide, during the rocks formation. Agate is a porous material that readily accepts dye for extreme color patterns.
