Natural Mexican Agate Gemstone
Agate is a variety of chalcedony which is a microcrystalline quartz. Agate is a more translucent microcrystalline quartz and technically is striped, though many stones named agates are not striped, whereas jasper is more opaque. All agates share a similar exterior identification, yet when cut, they consist of a multitude of variation, from plume or flower shape, to multi colored bouquet, moss plume, even tubes of crystallization.
Agates are known for their healing energy with their natural composition of quartz crystal. Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy.
