Agate was originally discovered according to Pliny the Elder at the Agate River in Sicily and then was discovered in Germany, the Americas, and India. Agate is a Greek word meaning that which is beautiful and good.  Agate is a part of the Quartz group and can be found in various forms such as milky, lined, banded, arborized, or herborized. Each color of Agate has a special meaning and in this case the black was very important to Theseus, the king of Athens, when he found it in the sea and gave it to his queen. By doing so, Black Agate became the queens stone for inner life and meditiation, enabling those who had it in their possession to look within themselves to find answers and the bands represent love. This stone encourages balance, is tied to the earth, helps with post-partum depression, male sexual issues, cures fevers by laying against the forehead, reduces epilepsy symtoms, aids against sleepwalking, in slowing down bloodflow when wounded, relieving insect bites, easing intestinal cramping, and halting buzzing in the ears according to metaphysicists. German mystic Hildgard of Bingen recommended it for heart and emotional ailments. Agate is a very powerful and protective stone with strong effects so please treat it with care when it is in your possession. This stone corresponds well with the zodiac signs Taurus (stability),  Scorpio (opening up spiritually), Virgo (attraction - Yellow Agate), and Gemini (Native Americans believe Moss Agate is linked to this sign). Each stone will come packaged with care containing a description card along with a special thank you exclusively from us to show our appreciation to each of you for placing your spiritual gem needs in our hands.
