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.
Gazing into this piece is like holding a tiny universe in the palm of your hand. The cluster of quartz in the center is surrounded by a blue/grey mist, which moves out to a darker edging that has a purple hue. There is a really interesting banding formation on the outside, which is almost a diamond shape. A really interesting 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.
