Agate on stand from Brazil
Agate is a variant of quartz and a sub-variety of chalcedony, which can be either cloudy or translucent. The colorful, striped stones are seen as semi-precious stones. The blue color is not natural but painted.
For happiness and healing
Traditionally, agate was worn as a lucky stone or for healing. For example, many amulets and necklaces are made of agate, but also consumables such as buttons.
Agate has a medicinal effect, such as protection during pregnancy, against headaches, skin disorders and balance disorders. Agate is also a grounding, stabilizing and protective stone. Inner peace is promoted for a calm and sober attitude.
