Formed from microscopic crystals of quartz laid down in bands, agate is a very stable crystal. Agates are grounding stones, bringing about an emotional, physical and intellectual balance. They aid in centering and stabilizing physical energy. It is seen known as a stone of good luck and fortune, and has been used as a talisman for centuries.
Agate supports retreat and spiritualizaton. It encourages a calm and contemplative view of life and helps with a positive regulation of our affairs. Agate encourages the conscious 'digesting' of our life's experiences and leads to spiritual maturity and growth, inner stability and a sense of reality.
Emotionally agate gives protection, security and safety by dissolving internal tensions, and also makes us better able to resist external influences. Examples that consist of regularly shaped, concentric banding are particularly effective. Agates that contain rock crystal (quartz) at their core stimulate the ability to remember things, even as far back as prenatal memories (past lives).
Mentally agate strengthens logical/rational thought that we use to help ourselves analyse problems back to their causes. Agate helps find simple, pragmatic solutions that can be put into action, calmly but without delay. Agate also enhances concentration on that which is essential and avoids distractions.
Physically agate balances our auras and the energy body. It has a strong protective effect, is harmonizing and stabilises health. Agate encourages regeneration and growth and is the pregnancy stone for both mother and child. Because of its layered structure made up of different quartzes, agate works on those organs that are built up of different layers of skin and tissue. It helps with diseases of the eyes (conjunctivitis), gastritis and stomach ulcers, bladder and intestinal inflammation, as well as diseases of the uterus. Agate stimulates the digestion and elimination, strengthens the blood vessels and helps with skin diseases.
