Agate is the name given to a range of stones that form in concentric layers, giving the banded patterns that characterize most agates. The name Agate is derived from the Achates river, in Sicily (now known as the Dirillo river) where the first agate was found by the ancient Greeks, and later mined by the Romans.
Agate is probably the most popular stone for tumbling, and creates some beautiful patterns. These tumbled stones are often used as paperweights or palm stones, but Agate is also used for jewelry, and you’ll find it used in rings, earrings, bracelets and so on.
Agate can occur in a range of colors, such as black, red, white, yellow, and pink.
Although Agate is considered to have a slower vibrational frequency than many other stones, it is thought to have a stabilizing effect. It is considered to be a stone of strength, and was used in ancient times on armor, where it was thought to promote strength in battle.
Agate is thought to balance the body’s energy, and also promote strength in the body, providing courage and protection as well as healing and calm. The healing properties may vary, depending on the color of the Agate.
