Agate is a Quartz species, a form of the gem Chalcedony. Agate's name is derived from the site of its discovery, the river Achates (now Dirillo) in southwest Sicily. Picture Agate displays natural inclusions that formed within the stone in such a way as to create well-defined images. These images have a natural, life-like, picturesque appearance. We love Picture Agate as it is art created naturally.
The earliest known carved agates come from Mesopotamia. Carved animals that date back to between 2000 BCE to 1001 BCE have been found. The Mycenaean used agate for seals, cylinders, and jewelry. The Greeks and Romans used agate for signet rings and tableware. Agate was used frequently throughout the Middle Ages for decorative objects.
Spiritually speaking, Agate is known as the stone of balance and harmony, and is widely used for its ability to bring emotional healing to mind, body and spirit. It is a powerful grounding stone that is believed to stabilize energy and balance yin and yang. Being grounded conveys a connection with Earth and one's surroundings allowing one to remain calm, rational and to make better decisions especially when surrounded by chaos.
