Agate Meaning and Healing Properties
Agate has a glassy luster and is formed from volcanic eruptions. Over its lifetime, layers of molten rock, mix with water and minerals, and AgateS patterns and colors are created. Often, we find a glorious door of crystals in the center of an Agate piece, and/or geode formations with amethyst or other types of quartz. This is one of the characteristics that make Agate so mysterious and exciting to view. Varying mineral content changes the stones patterns and colors, as well as the names of Agate types, including, Botswana Agate; Tree Moss, or Dendritic Agate; Banded Agate; Carnelian; Blue Lace, Fire Agate, and much more. Discovered on the shores of Sicily by the Greek naturist and Greek Philosopher, Theophrastus, Agate easily represents its place of discovery, as it contains all the colors and beauty of Sicily. This beautiful, bountiful stone, however, can be found all over the world.
