From beautiful Blue Lace to brown and earthly Botswana Agate, the Agate family presents some of the most beautiful healing crystals in the pack. Agates come from the quartz family and refer to different varieties of chalcedony stones. The beautiful banding and range of colors that make up the Agate gemstones were first discovered in the sweet flow of Sicily’s Achates River, famed for its sapphire-blue hues and mystical riches hidden in the riverbed. These stones were found by the Ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus. At the time, Agates were considered to be a priceless discovery. They were said to ward off all kinds of evil, to heal scorpion stings and snakebites, to calm raging storms, and to bring victory in times of war.
From Islam to the Egyptians, the world turned to the healing and protective properties of Agate. Persian Magicians would use these stones to control the thunder and lightning that danced across the sky. In Chinese medicine, Agate was used to stir up one's own chi.
