Agate is formed with bands of microscopic quartz crystals. It is a variety of Chalcedony. Agate is a grounding stone as well as a spiritual stone, allowing for one to bring their spiritual experiences into their everyday reality. Agate is believed to improve mental functions and can help where issues of clarity and stability are concerned. Agate is also helpful in overcoming negative emotions by bringing love into the chakras. Although they work very slowly and deliberately, this gentle nature of Agate helps it to have a lasting impact.
White Agate is beneficial to pregnant women, as it eases the effects of morning sickness and alleviates the pain of labor.
