Agate is often associated with grounding energy and promoting stability to enhance a sense of security and balance for the wearer. It is also thought to have a balancing, or harmonizing, effect on the mind, body, and spirit to help bring about a sense of equilibrium. When considering these properties, it’s not surprising that Agate is also believed to be a calming stone, one that is capable of providing a sense of peace and tranquility.
Agate is a type of microcrystalline quartz that is commonly found in volcanic rocks or as a filling in cavities of sedimentary rocks. It is known for its banded appearance and is formed when silica-rich groundwater fills voids or fractures in rocks and slowly deposits layers of silica, resulting in the formation of concentric bands.
