Its energy is a mental tonic and can help you cope with fears and worries, making you feel in harmony with your surroundings. Agate is a microcrystalline variety of silica, chiefly chalcedony, characterized by its fineness of grain, brightness of color, and potential striping. Each individual agate forms by filling a cavity in host rock. As a result, agate is often found as a round nodule, with concentric bands like the rings of a tree trunk. The bands sometimes look like eyes. In ancient times, it was said to quench thirst and protect against fever. Agate enhances mental function, improving concentration, analytical abilities. It soothes, heals tension and creates a sense of security. Agate heals the eyes, stomach and uterus; cleanses the lymphatic system and the pancreas; strengthens blood vessels and heals skin disorders.
