History:

 

Ancient Romans valued the Agate for its reputed medicinal and talismanic properties. Powdered and mixed with water, it was said to counteract serpents’ venom. Pliny, a Roman historian, quoted the Magii as teaching in Persia that storms might be averted by burning Agates.  Agates were believed to make their wearers agreeable, persuasive, and give them the favor of God, guarding them from all dangers, and enabling them to vanquish earthly obstacles, such as high winds and lightning. Ancient seafarers used Agate in amulets of protection from the fury of the surging ocean. The wearing of Agate was believed to be a cure for insomnia and was thought to induce pleasant dreams. Legends claim Agate to have the power to secure the wearer from danger and to protect children from falling, and to endow their owners with strength, courage and the ability to heal fears. Agate has a rich history of divinely revealed images within its natural veining, inclusions and markings. Such images as the Virgin Mary, Jesus, John the Baptist, angels and various other human forms have manifested themselves in these natural works of art and are found in churches and museums around the world.

Agate is believed to be the middle stone in the third row in the breastplate of the High Priest.

    I inspire loyalty and trustworthiness. I am supportive, particularly helping caregivers, calming stressful situations, however I can also assist in overcoming communication difficulties. Carry or wear me if you struggle to express your emotions. For those who have a history of trauma, I counteract repression and suppression of feelings caused by past fears, judgments, or rejections. I dissolve old patterns and make clear new methods of self-expression and growth. My calm, centering properties also aid those who are unable to stop talking, or who speak before thinking. I encourage discernment, a pause before sharing a thought. I am also useful during pregnancy. Agate also helps new mothers avoid the “baby blues” sometimes experienced after giving birth.
