Banded Agate

Introduction to Agate

Agate is a form of Chalcedony that comes in a variety of types and shapes in many different colors. You can quickly identify an agate by the banded texture, which gives each stone a unique appearance.  It has been used for centuries to find truth, ground the wearer, and balance the yin and yang.

Gemini’s can especially benefit from Agate as it calms their nerves and helps them focus on the task at hand.  It enhances their positive, outgoing, talkative personality.

Agate Meaning

Used by ancient Romans as a truth amulet, Agate helps you to find hidden information as well as speaking your truth to others. 

Agate is a powerful tool to cleanse and bring balance to the emotional, physical, and intellectual aspects of your life.  It is especially useful in getting over a bad breakup by healing the anger and helping you move on with life.  

Agate Properties

It is best to use Agates that are either in their natural forms or the polished tumbled versions.  Thinly sliced stones showing the banded colors, but they lose some power and function.  

All Agates provide balance and healing when worn or placed in your home.  They differ in speed and energy.  Blue Lace agates provide a tranquil healing experience while fire red agates create a highly energized experience. 

Due to its popularity, you can find Agates in many different forms such as jewelry, small carvings, beads, bookends, and so on.  Placed correctly in your home (see our Feng Shui guide), it brings balance and healing to your household.  Geodes make excellent bookends; reap the benefit of tranquil healing vibes with the beautiful banding.  Wear or carry the stone with you to promote strength, optimism, and self-confidence.
