Agate is a wonderful stone for rebalancing and harmonising the body, mind, and spirit. It purifies and stabilises the aura, removing and transforming negativity. Agate improves mental function by increasing concentration, perception, and analytical skills. It soothes and calms, healing inner anger or tension, and instilling a sense of security and safety.
Agate heals the eyes, stomach, and uterus; cleanses the lymphatic system and pancreas; strengthens blood vessels; and treats skin conditions.
Please keep your agate away from direct sunlight or it will lose its colour.
History and Uses:
Agate was named after the Achates river in Sicily which is now called the Dirillo river. It was first found in the 3rd or 4th century BC and one of the oldest stones in recorded history. It comes in a variety of forms and has been used in jewellery since these times. They were prized gems in antiquity and were believed to ward off storms.
The agate stone has a very long association with humans going back to Neolithic people who made a lot of their artefacts using agate. The agates with banded colours were placed at the head of a sleeper to give rich and varied dreams.
It is a stone that brought strength and stability to the wearer.
