Agate the Stone of the Earth
Way before drugs, medicine, and Pharmaceutical companies, we had much more natural, organic, and healthy ways to cure ourselves.
Thankfully, many of us are starting to see the light and going back to nature for our cures.
Gemstones such as Agate are some of the oldest stones known to man as cures.
Known as the ‘earth rainbow’ due to the wave-like markings in the stone as well as the rich variety of colours it comes in.
Medicinal uses continued through the ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations, spreading through Africa and the Middle East into Russia.
Agate is excellent for balancing emotional, physical and intellectual energy, harmonising Yin and Yang.
For mental stability and help with concentration, wear an Agate amulet or simply keep a stone close by.
Agate stabilizes the aura, eliminating and transforming negative energies. Its cleansing effect is powerful at all levels.
When feeling a lack of confidence, a fear, or insecurity, agate can help with stability and grounding.
It’s a great crystal for new mothers too! It helps relieve and reduce baby blues and, when worn in between the breasts, it helps with lactation.
Agate is useful as a protection amulet when travelling, and is especially effective against traffic accidents.
Also beneficial in self-analysis promoting self-acceptance and confidence, encouraging the speaking of one’s own truth and, most importantly, Agate overcomes negativity.
The Gemini Birthstone
Agate is one of the zodiac stones for those born under the sign Gemini, between May 21 and June 20, when the Earth is approaching summer.
The constellation Gemini is known as the Sign of the Inventor and is seen as twins side by side in the sky.
It is closely associated with the planet Mercury.
Those born under this sign can see both sides of an issue.
They’re flexible and can go with the flow, and can be lively and talkative, or restless and nervous depending on their setting.
Those born when the Sun is in Gemini are quick thinkers, quick-witted, and quick on their feet.
Being a Gemini myself I have always been attracted to Agate, so the process of creating a gorgeous range of necklaces for Amanda Marcucci .com felt very special and personal.
