Agate Palm Stone With DendrtitesThe backside of this stone has a semi transparent shell with dendrite design hidden underneath. But on top of the transparent shell are two white cracks. Ancient Romans valued the Agate for its reputed medicinal and talismanic properties. Powdered and mixed with water, it was said to counteract serpents’ venom. Pliny, a Roman historian, quoted the Magii as teaching in Persia that storms might be averted by burning Agates. Agates were believed to make their wearers agreeable, persuasive, and give them the favor of God, guarding them from all dangers, and enabling them to vanquish earthly obstacles, such as high winds and lightning. Ancient seafarers used Agate in amulets of protection from the fury of the surging ocean.
