What is agate?
Agate is a variety of quartz and a sub-variety of chalcedony, it 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, but also 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.
