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.
The distinctive pattern that has revealed itself through the carving of this butterfly is striking. Gorgeous shimmering magneta is emphasized by the striking burnt amber colored banding at the edge of the wings. This piece comes with adjustable metal legs, allowing for easy display. Truly a one of a kind!
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.
