Agate: The Magic of Light

Thursday, 20 August 2009

agateNo gem is more artistically striped by nature than agate, chalcedony quartz that forms in a wide variety of transparent grey or blue or blue ribbon layers of colors and textures. The gem stone is opaque with silky tender glitter. This is the stone-legend.

The origin of the name is unknown for sure. In the opinion of some surveyors agate has its name from the river Achates in Sicily, upon the ancient deposit of gem stones. The others suppose that the gem is named in Ancient Greece from Greek abates (happy). Bearing in mind that from the old times the black agate was supposed as the part of the mourning attire, we hardly believe that this gem was called as bringing happiness. However, wonderful striped gem stones are still found by Agata river side.

Agates were believed to absolutely belong to the Goddess Pomoa who patronized the harvest. The farmers and livestock breeders were supposed to wear jewelry from striped agate to ensure rich harvest and success. Ancient people also believed that agate rolls were powerful enough to protect greenery from frosts and hail, thus the balls were buried in the soil when planting. Lytotherapeutists (the experts in stone therapy) affirm that agate is helpful with long-lasted coughing and sore throat (agate is worn as beads), and also with toothache (agate earrings) and with gout and joint diseases wearing agate bracelets. Agate rings on the left ring finger are recommended for those suffering from cardiovascular diseases.

Also white agate on the right third finger copes with wild passion, anger, hysteria, insomnia, causeless fear, and panic. Agate necklaces are good to heal sores and wounds and striped agate with grey or black stripes are more recommended. Asthma, pneumonia and bronchitis can be healed when wearing brooches from agate. Also it is believed that agate placed to the sore place is able to speed up bone jointing or blood clotting.

People suffering from thirst but who are not recommended to drink a lot due to some reasons are advised wearing agate cabochons. This fact is related to travelers of Ancient Egypt who used to cross arid desserts having little water on them. When thirsty, they used to suckle small agate discs and it worked.

White agate is invaluable for public speakers, yet, this gem was very popular with Cicero. When put under the tongue, the gem helps to make the speech expressive. Also the white agate improves poor sight and heals melancholy.

Love and parting problems can be eased with agate gems; this stone also contributes to disclosing fraud and comprehending secret thoughts. And these features are highly appreciated by occultists who consider the agate as the gem of the Great Mother and state that agate possesses the magic power of light. Black agate is highly favored among those who respect the ancient time. It is believed that black agate protects from danger and evil and especially from vampires since the latter feel uncomfortable by the agate bearer. Though, there is the other side of this story. The black agate is able to bring sorrow and further create contingencies.

Laminated agate is believed to be the talisman and unique aphrodisiac for men increasing their potency. This gem was well-liked by military men and politicians since it helped to discover plans of opposition, it intensified the intelligence and ensured power and might. Moreover, the gem protected from attempts on life and unexpected death.

Agate is the stone of the Taurus zodiac signs and the latter should wear it in the copper frame. Cancer, Aquarius and Libra signs must wear the gem in the golden or silver frame. Pisces may wear agate twice a week, not more, while Sagittarius and Aries are not recommended the agate jewels and talismans. Agate is harmful for these zodiac signs as the strong aphrodisiac that brings fuss and panic in life style and worsens their reputation.
