Though the colour of agate varies depending on the type, this popular stone long remarked for its beauty can be identified by its signature bands and translucent lustre. Agate forms as a result of igneous rock marrying with the silica deposits in groundwater. The colourful bands that give the semi-precious stone its trademark bands are layers of agate deposits that develop on top of each other. Agates are banded types of chalcedony that come in a range of colours including pink, red, brown, white, purple, black, grey and yellow.
Agate crystals vibrate on a lower, more gentle frequency. There are many types of agate that provide different healing properties depending on their variety. In general, though, agate healing properties are slow and steady. They aren’t as intense as crystals like clear quartz or selenite, but they radiate a soft strength to ground the spirit with a sense of stability. Agate properties connect with the energy of the Earth. They are thought to bring harmony to all aspects of the being, physical, spiritual and emotional. Using agate during times of unbalance, when it feels as if the yin and yang within you are operating out of proportion, can reintroduce an equilibrium to your tempered soul.
Agate meaning differs from civilisation to civilisation. Ancient Islamic cultures believed that agate could ward off the evil eye and tragedies. Similarly, Babylonians also believed that agate properties could be used to dispel evil energy. The ancient Egyptians, however, believed agate meaning to refer to as many things as protection against natural disasters like lightning, protection from thirst and as having the ability to deliver powers of speech. Persians also believed that agate stone could be used to defend against storms. The power of agate gemstone to the ancient Chinese was more internal; they believed that agate crystal meaning was one of spiritual protection, and could stimulate one’s life force while cleansing their mind to make space for good luck and fortune. All in all, a handy stone to keep close by!
The materials I use are entirely natural, with differing shapes, sizes and colours. Some may have small natural inclusions or be more segmented with patches of differing hues, meaning that each is beautifully unique.
