All Types

Agate is a good protective energy stone, especially for children.  It is very calming and soothing.

It is a stone of harmony and by bringing the elements of one’s being into harmony it greatly enhances healing. Agate also enhances creativity and stimulates the intellect.

Agate is considered a stone that brings good luck. It works with chakras according to stone colour. Agate is said to help with issues of the teeth and gums.

A stone of many colours naturally, it is also often dyed.  Agate is found in redpinkorangeyellow, brown, greenbluepurplewhite, grey, black, banded and multi-coloured.  Choose the colour of your particular stone to read the Metaphysical Properties of Colour in association with the above information.

Blue Lace Agate

Blue lace agate is a gentle, calming stone that engenders tranquillity.

It assists in flight, grace, reaching higher Spiritual planes, communicating with angels and activates the throat chakra. It can ease the harsh edge off communication in difficult times; enhance public speaking, and smooth discussions.

It is an inspiring stone that can assist in inner attunement and has been used to perform miracles. As with all agates, it is a protective stone.

Physically it has been used to aid with arthritis, headaches, digestive issues, growth, and bones.

Blue lace agate is related to the element of Air.

Botswana Agate

Botswana agate is sometimes called the “change stone” because of its property of helping one handle change in a positive way. It gently helps one make transitions of any kind in a way that change is not as difficult or painful as could be without it; it is a comforting stone.

Carrying a bit of Botswana agate in your pocket can help one cope easily with the minor changes that life throws at us daily. Relief from depression and/or grief is another property of Botswana agate. It helps focus on solutions instead of problems, and thereby increases creativity. It increases the power of one’s intuition.

Botswana agate is helpful in overcoming addictions and other self-destructive compulsive behaviour patterns, as well as dealing with repressed emotional issues.

As a success stone, it helps one achieve and cope with success.

It is also a stone of sensuality. It is beneficial to the nervous system and can help rid the body of toxins, as well as help in the healing of broken bones.

Fire Agate

An important aspect of Fire Agate is the connection to the energies of the Earth.  Fire Agate may help one feel more settled and secure.  It offers a calming experience and is excellent for meditation and relaxation.

This stone may assist with problems of the stomach and endocrine system and may benefit sexual endeavours.

Fire Agate offers a grounding influence while being highly stimulating.  This combination enables one to deal with problems that arise in a calm manner and takes the edge off difficult experiences.

Moss Agate

Moss agate is sometimes called the “gardener’s stone” due to its properties of helping ensure a full crop. In addition to a full crop, moss agate brings general abundance, success, and prosperity.

It can also help one gain peace with extreme or excessive duties in life and brings self-confidence and higher self-esteem. Moss agate is also a protective stone, as are all agates. It can reduce the difficulties associated with overcoming addictive behaviours.

Tree Agate

(Dendritic Agate)

Tree (Dendritic) Agate is said to assist with introspection and self-discovery. It can give a wider viewpoint of the world. Tree agate relives tension, fever, and skin eruptions. It also brings plentiful crops.
