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.
Sterling silver is the brightest of all precious metals being known for its bright luster. It is also known for being very durable which makes it popular in jewelry as it will withstand the test of time.
The Sunflower Agate set in this pendant has a variety of color ranging from cream to almost black with an array of browns. The .925 Sterling Silver is nickel-free and has a unique design along its sides, emphasizing the tasteful colors within this stone.
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.
