Agate is the crystal to call upon for support when you need stability and/or grounding in your life. Along with its supportive energy, Agate has been long admired for its incredible beauty. This crystal has a dreamy quality with signature bands made up of mineral deposits layered in a perfectly circular symmetry around its circumference. A combination of igneous rock with silica deposits found in groundwater, the spectacular bands give this semi-precious stone its trademark appearance. What gives Agate its incredibly powerful grounding abilities, is its availability in different colors, including a palette of white, purple, black, gray, yellow, pink, red, and brown.
Agate belongs to the Quartz family, which makes it a popular crystal for healing, especially due to its composition of silicon dioxide, a mineral that is also found in the human body. The variety of Chalcedony bands also help enhance your feelings of stability, which can be very helpful if you’re caught in a cycle of worry and overthinking. It works by connecting you with the gentle vibrations of the Earth, making it a gentle stone with a light, diffused energy.
