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.
Both the face and bottom of this piece are polished, which makes it easy to display. It is translucent, allowing the light to penetrate from one side. A tiny opening reveals the quartz sparking inside, surrounded by a thin dark band. The polished face reveals subtle grey banding moving out toward darker edges. An impressive little piece.
Many people find Agate 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.
