Turitella agate is a special phenomenon among agates. Volcanic rocks usually form the basis for this mineral. But in this case, it is the thick layers of snail shells and shells that have allowed the formation of agate. The prints are still easy to see.
What is agate?
Agate is a variant of quartz and a sub-variety of chalcedony, which can be cloudy or translucent. Agate forms in cavities through which silicon rich water flows. This always leaves a layer behind. These are the characteristic stripes that often appear in agate.
For happiness and healing
Agate was traditionally worn as a lucky stone or for healing. For example, many amulets and necklaces are made of agate, as well as consumer items such as buttons. Agate has medicinal properties, 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.
