What is agate?
Agate is a variety of micro crystalline quartz that forms in layers and many colours and texture, by filling a cavity in a host rock - although it is usually in round nodules with bands looking like eyes in the rings of a tree trunk. Different colours are caused by iron oxide or limonite crystals carried by water seeping into the cavity. Some people swear that wearing agate heightens spiritual consciousness and balances the body's physical and mental state.

Benefits
Agate was valued as a powerful talisman in ancient times, when it was used on the breastplates of armour to give strength and courage. Agate is also thought to protect from stress, bad dreams, and help stomach upsets. Agate can't change emotions, but improves our level of acceptance. Wear agate when you have to make an important decision. It is also considered to be an excellent stone to heal and improve relationships, and is especially protective for children.
