Agate is a cryptocrystalline variety of silica, made up of mostly chalcedony. It has a very fine grain, and often has a banded appearance. It was named by a Greek philosopher, who discovered it in what is now Sicily. Banded Agate gets its name from the distinct banding patterns found in this variety of Agate.
These Agate beads are quite a bit darker than most with just a few lighter beads on the strand. You are able to some banding on a few of the beads. These are really quite pretty.
Agates are thought to be grounding, stabilizing stones that are ideal for emotional, physical and mental balance. They are thought to improve concentration, acceptance of self, and letting go of internalized anger. Agates take you through the layers of yourself, and help you to learn more about who you are, letting go of blockages, and discovering what paths you should be exploring.
