Banded agate is a white crystal with banded patterns in contrasting colors of black, cream, red, and/or tan. It is transparent to opaque with a glass-like shine, and can be found in rounded nodules and knobs when in its natural state.
Often called the “earth rainbow” and with distinct banding, Banded Agate is a healing stone for body, mind and spirit.
It can increase concentration, honesty and memory.
Banded Agate also protects the wearer from psychic attack, thereby preventing negative energy from harming you.
Physically, Banded Agate increases stamina, helps with digestive conditions and protects the body from harmful radiation from X-rays.
