The Origin of Agate Crystal and its Healing Properties

The History of Agate

Agate is one of my favourite gemstones as its an excellent stone for helping to heal and improve relationships. Agate was first discovered around the 3rd/4th century (BC) by Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher who named the stone after the river in which it was found, the ‘Achates,’ in Italy.

Agate is known as a stone of strength. It was used by Ancient people on the breastplates of their armour to give warriors strength and to make them victorious in battle.

Crystals: The Power to Heal is in Your Hands

I find it truly fascinating knowing the depth and inner meaning behind crystals and gemstones. The beauty of each stone is their uniqueness in its shape and size and the fact that each one has a history of thousands of years, containing tales of wonder and cosmic powers. 

 

What is a druzy anyways?

 A druzy comprises of thousands of tiny shimmering crystal elements that form on the surface of a gemstone, resembling glittering sugar or snow crystals.

 

The word druzy comes from the German word "druse" which means Geode. Geode is from the Greek word ge-odes meaning "Earth like." A geode is a hollow spherical mineral that was formed due to volcanic activity, and acts as a "parent" to the hollow part, that is then partially filled with the minerals that become semiprecious gemstones, which then form these beautiful crystals.

Crystals As An Alternative Healing Tool

Most of the time we are ill because of an imbalance in ourselves. Natural healing will often lend itself to healing the person as a whole rather than just trying to fix body elements temporarily! Generally speaking, people turn to natural healing where conventional medicine has failed. Holistic medicine can often bring about healing on deeper levels. 

 

All healing is based on a transfer of energy from one source to another. A natural healer is often able to transmit energy from one person to the next. When we are ill or out of sorts, crystals and minerals can often restore our balance by transmitting the energies that are vital to us. In the process of healing by gemstones, energy may flow from the stone with unstoppable force. We can activate a crystal's vibrations by rubbing them and allowing them to warm to room temperature.
