“Gem of Harmony”
Agates are fully formed geodes, consisting of non-crystalizing varieties
of silica, primarily, chalcedony. The first layer of any geode, is usually
agate at a variable quantity; less agate may cause thinner geodes; more
fragile. Thicker agate gives more protection to the crystals formed within
the pocket. Trace minerals produce the vast range of colors found within
these cosmic stones. Most colors of agates have their own identifying
names, ie Red/Orange = Carnelian. Agate is thought to increase courage,
energy, and self-confidence; also promotes longevity. Depending on
color, chakra correspondence shifts from root through crown.
Each item is unique and one of a kind. Nature's treasures do vary in their shape and color.
