✧ NZ Agate ✧ Mt Somers
Stone Origin: Woolshed Creek, Mt Somers, Canterbury, New Zealand.
Agate slice with one polished surface.
Even though Agates do come in many different varieties, all Agates appear to be telling us an individual ‘Agate story’.
Perhaps this is why children are naturally drawn to Agates, as they seem to be more receptive to stories than many adults.
But that wouldn’t be the only reason, Agates are also great balancers of energy and many Agates are gentle grounding stones.
Some Agates though, when placed near the head during sleep do have the ability to enhance deep and colourful dreams.
From a more scientific perspective Agates are a form of Chalcedony. Chalcedony is composed of an intergrowth between Quartz and Moganite. Quartz and Moganite are similar yet they have a different crystal structure.
Because of this it may not be surprising that Agates are said to balance the Feminine and the Masculine energies within a person, or the Yin and Yang energies.
Agates can be very soothing and calming. For instance Moss Agate does work soothing on skin disorders like Eczema, Blue Lace Agate can aid in calming a busy mind and Botswana Agate calms the nervous system.
The Agates in our online store are mainly Agates from New Zealand’s South Island and they carry some of the pristine beauty and intense variety of landscape of this wonderful land.
