Agates are a form of chalcedony, which is part of the quartz family. There is a wide variety of agate available and most types have a calming energy.
Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. Agate is excellent for balancing emotional, physical, and intellectual energy, and harmonizing yin and yang, the positive and negative forces of the universe.
What are the Properties of Agate?
Agate is useful as a protection amulet when traveling, and is especially effective against traffic accidents.
As a professional support stone, Agate stabilizes the imagination and inspiration of artists, provides personal security for police, telephone workers, cooks, chefs, and bakers, and protection from falling objects for builders and construction workers. It provides physical strength and endurance for dancers, dentists, and environmentalists, and emotional endurance for educators and recreational workers.
