Agate And Its Magical Properties

A Botswana Agate

Introduction

Agate is one stone that holds many forms and perhaps has a high importance has well. Legends show us that Persian magicians used Agate to divert storms. There was a king of Pontus that had a great love of Agate. There's even a famous collection of three thousand agate bowls to prove it. But what many may not know is that Agate and its many forms can aid in healing and may be used in many magical uses if you believe in that sort of thing that is.

Healing

All forms of agate are said to aid in disorders of the pancreas and to improve circulation. However each form has their different healing properties and I will share with you below what they include.

Blue Lace which looks exactly as it is titled is a stone that can help with arthritis. It can help relieve the pain of headaches and digestive issues as well. If you have any growth issues or bone problems this stone will probably be the one for you.

Moss Agate is more of an emotionally based healing stone. It will aid with healing your heart and help increase your self esteem. So if you are one that struggle with either or, then this may be the stone for you.

Botswana Agate, which happens to be one of my favorite forms of agate, is one of the most powerful out of the agate. This stone is an anti-depressant stone. It can even help those who have addictions, including any kind of self destructive behaviors and compulsive behavior. If you happen to be someone who represses emotional issues this stone can aid in dealing with that. Also Botswana Agate is a great stone for the nervous system and can rid the body of toxins. It is said to also help the healing process with broken bones.

Crazy Lace also called Mexican Lace Agate is also another stone that can help with emotional and mental problems. It helps by absorbing any emotional pain or mental pain you may be feeling. It can also increase stamina and energy. This stone is good for skin disorders such as acne and eczema. It may also be helpful with the endocrine system and for the heart.

Fire Agate is one that aids not in one particular problem but one that targets systems on a whole note. It helps the circulatory system and the lymph system the most but may also help with intestines.

If you struggle with tension you may want to use the Tree Agate for it is said to help with relieving tension as well as fever and even skin eruptions.

Eagle Eye is a stone mainly for energy. Now this stone doesn't cause you to have a constant source of energy. It is more like an energy that comes in bursts.

The Leaf Agate is one that is more of a balancing stone to aid in balancing your emotional and physical aspects.

Eye Agate, also known as Cat's Eye Agate, can be used to treat growths.

Now I always like to add in my crystal/gemstone hubs when I speak of healing that it is important to speak to a doctor and not to fully rely on crystal healing. While I love crystal healing I cannot call myself a doctor. It is best to find out what is wrong with you and get properly diagnosed by a doctor first before doing anything. Then you can go from there. I always like to use medication first but then if that doesn't work then I use crystal healing. Sometimes I use both at once.

Magical Properties

Similar to the healing properties each Agate has different magical properties and I will share them with you similar to the way I did with the healing ones.

Blue lace is a stone of Pisces. This stone is a calming stone, a stone of tranquility and can be used for so. It assists in flight. It has been used to reach higher Spiritual planes and communicating with Angels. This stone is best used with the Throat Chakra. During times of harsh communication this stone can take the edge off from that and can smooth out discussions. This stone is a miracle stone and has been used to perform them.

Moss Agate is a Virgo stone. If you hold it is said that it can make one think of sunlight and the scent of fresh moss. It makes a great gardener's talisman. It is most often used to enhance plant growth and to grow prosperity. That includes wealth and abundance into life. This stone can lead one into being able to agree more with people and allows oneself to be able to see beauty within everything that ones eyes may see.

The Botswana Agate is a Scorpio stone and helps aid in change. It helps someone to be able to handle change in a more positive way. It is a comforting stone. Carrying this in your pocket can help you cope easily with minor changes that may come you way in the day. This stone helps us focus on solutions to problems rather then the problems themselves and can increase creativity by doing so. It may also increase intuition. This stone is said to stimulate the Crown Chakra. It may also help one achieve success and cope with it.

The Crazy Lace or Mexican Lace as some call it is an Aries stone and is for balancing and protection. It can bring laughter to it's owner and absorbs emotional pain. It may also help in decision making and helps one to stay focused. It is also said to ward of the "evil eye".

The Fire Agate is also an Aries stone and is a stone of courage. If you are one who holds fears to something then this stone may help you. It is said to relieve fears. It also puts a stop to gossiping and reflects any threat that someone may sent out to you back to the source. It may help with spiritual advancement and progression. It has been used in spells of communication in writing and speaking.

The tree agate helps in introspection and self discovery. It gives the owner a wider viewpoint of the world and can also bring plenty of crops.

The Eagle eye enhances creativity and intellect. It is a stone of luck and conservation and may enhance longevity.

The silver leaf agate helps with grounding and balancing. It opens the wearer up for acceptance, protection, and abundance. The Golden leaf also aids in acceptance but offers emotional and physical balance. It connects to nature and fosters love.

The eye agate also known as Cat's eye is used to stimulate regenerative powers of the body. It attunes one to other planets of this solar system.

Conclusion

This is the longest hub I've written on a stone and rightfully so. Agate has so many forms and I'm sure I probably failed to mention one or two of them. I only own one form of the agate and that's the Botswana. I do plan on getting more to my collection. I love gemstones. They are beautiful, unique and of the earth. I connect to them. I always have even as a child. What one sounds like would be your favorite?

A wonderful hub full of knowledge and imparting it as well. Agates are cool! I use Moss Agates in my garden. Each plant has its own, small or large. They really aren't that expensive either, a penny or two really, once discovered that a hidden treasure of growth is brought.
