Agate is said to serve as a gentle grounder of energy, easing one back into a state of balance. It is able to perfectly balance the male/female energies so that one can remained centered.
Agate is the banded variety of chalcedony, which comes in a wide variety of colors. Agates are primarily formed within volcanic and metamorphic rocks.
These agate rocks have internal colors of black, blue, green, red, white, pink, yellow, grey, purple, brown and orange.
Agate is a type of chalcedony, which is a microcrystalline form of quartz. It is known for its beautiful banding and patterns, which are caused by the different impurities that are present in the stone. Agate is formed when silica-rich water fills rock voids, particularly volcanic rock voids. As the water leaves, silica mineral deposits remain, and they functionally form gemstone crystals. Over time, numerous layers develop, leading to an agate.
Many of the specimens we have contain additional crystal formations
