Dendritic Agate Talisman
Agate is the name given to numerous varieties of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Agate has been discovered with the artifacts of Neolithic people, and was used as healing amulets and ornamentation dating back to Babylon. Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. The layered bands of microscopic quartz in Agate may appear delicate, they are actually very strong. Agate is excellent for balancing emotional, physical and intellectual energy, and in harmonizing yin and yang, the positive and negative forces of the universe. Agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence.
