Mineral Description
 
healing crystals
Tumbled and polished gray agate imported by Kidz Rocks from Brazil. These are not the small 3/4 inch tumbled stones everyone else sells. These are large tumbled stones that we have custom made for us by our Brazilian supplier.

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 gray agate crystal that is 1 1/2 inch to 2 inch and weighing 2 to 3 ounces.


Bulk Purchase Specimen
You are buying one rock. You will receive a rock like the ones in the photographs, not the exact rock shown. The photograph with multiple rocks is so you can see the range of differences in this bulk purchase specimen listing. Photographing and listing every rock separately adds a lot in labor costs. We pass that savings on to you with lower prices and higher quality than the competition.

Geodes are rock and crystalline formations found in volcanic and sedimentary rock. Geodes are essentially rock cavities or vugs with internal crystal formations or concentric banding. The exterior of the most common geodes is generally limestone or a related rock, while the interior contains quartz crystals and/or chalcedony deposits. Other geodes are completely filled with crystal, being solid all the way through. These types of geodes are called nodules. These formations are common in just a few states in America, but can be found anywhere from store shelves, where they are sold as paper weights, to lawn ornamentation in landscaping. The name Geode was derived from the Greek word geodes, meaning earth-like. Keokuk, Iowa is known as the geode capital of the world for very good reason. A virtually countless number of geodes has been collected from the Keokuk area over especially the last 150 years. Geodes can form in any cavity, but the term is usually reserved for more or less rounded formations in igneous and sedimentary rocks, while the more general term vug is applied to cavities in fissures and veins. They can form in gas bubbles in igneous rocks, such as vesicles in basaltic lavas, or as in the American Midwest, rounded cavities in sedimentary formations.

HEALING PROPERTIESGray Agate is a grounding stone, bringing about an emotional, physical and intellectual balance. They aid in centering and stabilizing physical energy. Gray Agate has the power to harmonize yin and yang, the positive and negative forces that hold the universe in place. It works slowly but brings great strength. Its multiple layers can bring hidden information to light.

Psychologically, Gray Agate gently facilitates acceptance of one’s self, building self-confidence. It also aids self-analysis and perception of hidden circumstances. Gray Agate enhances mental function as it improves concentration, perception and analytical abilities, leading to practical solutions.

Emotionally, it overcomes negativity and bitterness of the heart. It heals inner anger, fostering love and the courage to start again. It is useful for any kind of emotional trauma. It creates a sense of safety and security by dissolving internal tension.
