Mineral Description
 
healing crystals
This high quality tumbled and polished dendrite agate is imported by Kidz Rocks from Brazil. These are not the small 3/4 inch tumbled stones everyone else sells. These are very large tumbled stones that we have custom made for us by our Brazilian supplier. Only the best at Kidz Rocks!

These are also properly tumbled stones. They are tumbled just enough to create a polish but while still retaining the original unique shape and character of each stone.

You will receive one polished dendrite agate crystal that is 2 inch to 2 1/2 inch and weighing 2 ounces.

As a general term, agate is so broadly descriptive that there are hundreds of names applied to varieties of agate from different localities. While many names reflect the source, some popular varieties are descriptive, such as blue lace agate. The stone was given its name by Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher and naturalist, who discovered the stone along the shoreline of the river Achates sometime between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.

Agate is one of the most common materials used in the art of hardstone carving, and has been recovered at a number of ancient sites, indicating its widespread use in the ancient world. There are many forms of Agate and they are: Madagascar Agate, Asia Agate, Moss Agate, India Black Skin Agate, Plume Agate, Blue Lace Agate, Banded Agate, Montana Agate, Red Agate, Fire Agate, Crazy Lace Agate, Argentina Agate, Dry Head Agate, Mexican Lace Agate, Laguna Agate, Banded Agate, Graveyard Agate, Botswana & Tree Agate. Natural Agate color is clear or milky white, gray, blue, green, pink, brown and it is often artificially colored.

HEALING PROPERTIES

Agate's most noticeable properties overall are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming. Historically it was placed in water for cooking or drinking to dispel sickness. The Metaphysical and Healing Properties Lore of any specific type of agate depend to some extent on the color of the agate, but all agates have certain things in common.

Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength in both battle and physically.

Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. However, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone, and enhances longevity.
