Agate is said to bring a soothing, calming flow of energy. Said to be a stone to help us stay grounded in the present moment, connected to Mother Earth and connected to our own energies. Think of this crystal as your 'rock'; always there to protect you, keep your emotions balanced and provide you with a slow, steady, unwavering support, no matter what.
Chakra: Heart, Sacral
Colour: Brown, pale grey and tones of pink. Changes in temperature and mineral sources during formation influence changes to the layers of agate resulting in a banded pattern and varying tones of colour and crystal grain size.
Common geological occurrences: Botswana
Crystallography: Agate is a cryptocrystalline variety of quartz, meaning it is composed of fine dense crystals that can only be seen under microscopic magnification. The microscopic crystals are deposited at relatively low temperatures by silica-rich circulating ground waters and line voids and cavities creating fine layers of agate.
Observations: Banding may be straight, curved or rippled forming a ‘lacy’ appearance
Whilst agate isn't a 'soft' stone it is still prone to scratching and surface dulling over time if not handled with care.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
