Agate is the name given to numerous varieties of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Its name comes from the Achetes River in Sicily, where Agates were first found. Usually banded in layers, or stripes, some varieties have “eye” markings, or specks of color, some have fossilized inclusions, and others are solid. Called the earth rainbow, the concentric bands of Agate form in nearly every color the earth can produce, including a colorless form.
The world of Agates is a fascinating and ever evolving place. There are hundreds, if not thousands of types of agates. They are found around the world. They bring a wonder and magic to the planet with their swirls of color bands.
Historically, Agate has been discovered with the artifacts of Neolithic people, and was used as healing amulets and ornamentation dating back to Babylon. Its medicinal uses continued through the ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations, and spread throughout Africa and the Middle East into Russia.
Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. The layered bands of microscopic quartz in Agate may appear delicate, they are actually very strong. Agate is excellent for balancing emotional, physical and intellectual energy, and in harmonizing yin and yang, the positive and negative forces of the universe.
Agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. It is a great crystal to use during pregnancy. Agate also helps new mothers avoid the “baby blues” sometimes experienced after giving birth, and an Agate jewel worn between the breasts encourages lactation.
Agate stops the burning desires for things we do not need, and assists those juggling commitments or multiple jobs. It helps writers express ideas in marketable form, and helps young children learn to walk and not fall as they get older. Agate also promotes marital fidelity.
Agate is useful as a protection amulet when traveling and is said to prevent accidents.
Agate enhances mental function by improving concentration, perception, and analytical abilities.
Placed on the abdomen, Agate stimulates the digestive system and relieves gastritis. It is beneficial for the eyes, hollow organs such as the stomach, uterus, intestines, etc., and heals skin disorders and itching due to insect bites.
Agate is helpful to the heart and blood vessels. Wearing an Agate in the middle of the chest strengthens the cardiac muscle, and heals emotional disharmony that prevents acceptance of love.
A cold Agate placed on the forehead is generally effective in curing fever. (If the fever returns, however, consult a doctor.) Agate may also reduce the symptoms of epilepsy, and for some people guards against sleepwalking.
Agate encourages a sense of reality and pragmatic thinking. Agates with regular designs soothe those who desire peace and harmony, while those with irregular designs can stimulate action and important decision making.
Agate is beneficial in self-analysis and uncovering hidden circumstances that might interfere with well-being. It promotes self-acceptance and confidence, encouraging the speaking of one’s own truth. Agate overcomes negativity and bitterness of the heart, by healing anger, fostering love, and lending the courage to start over. It is useful for any kind of trauma.
Agate stabilizes the aura, eliminating and transforming negative energies. Its cleansing effect is powerful at all levels
Agate raises awareness and links into the collective consciousness of the oneness of life. It encourages quiet contemplation of one’s life experiences that lead to spiritual growth and inner stability.
Agate provides a wide variety of crystal formations conducive for meditation focus. The intricate movements within the crystal encourage a calm, relaxing state and open the mind to higher thought and inner truths.
Jaspers have been revered by ancient peoples and civilizations throughout the world as sacred and powerful stones of protection, for both the physical and spiritual realm. They were known as the “rain bringers” and supreme nurturers, healers of the spirit and stones of courage and wisdom. The name can be traced back in Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Assyrian, Greek and Latin, and the virtues of Jaspers have been extolled throughout the ages by the most noted physicians, magicians, poets, scientists, lapidaries and scholars.
Jasper is an opaque chalcedony that comes in a wide variety of colors. When we trace the term “jasper” back to the Greek work iaspi, it means “spotted stone.” Jasper is a gemstone that has been used all over the world. The ancient priests of Egypt carved jasper into beautiful jewelry while the Minoans used jasper for seals. Its one-of-a-kind patterns have made it widely popular since antiquity when it was also used for amulets against drought. While jasper is widely available today, the gemstone was once treasured as a valuable stone.
All Jaspers connect to the Earth and may be placed on the Base Chakra to stabilize and energize the physical body. Laying it over each chakra in turn, will cleanse, boost and realign the chakras and aura, balancing yin and yang energies as well as aligning the physical, emotional and mental bodies with the etheric realm, unifying all aspects of our life. All Jaspers also absorb negative energy and are able to support you during times of stress by providing tranquility. Jaspers remind people that we are all here to help one another. They provide protection and grounding energy for the physical body. All Jaspers also promote determination, helping you to tackle challenges assertively and face your truth with honesty.
Jaspers help with quick thinking, organizational skills, and the imagination, allowing you to transform your ideas into action.
Silver Leaf Jasper
Jasper gemstones are found all over the world, but Silver Leaf Jasper is found particularly in Africa and Russia. It is a beautiful combination of subtle greys, silver-greens, blacks, red-browns and whites in swirling patterns – it ‘breathes’ natural sophistication.
With its balance of colors, silver leaf jasper is a stone that promotes balance. It provides strength of purpose, promotes stability and–like all jaspers–is a grounding stone and is often used for healing purposes. During meditation, it is believed to awaken its holders to a sense of joy. Like all black/grey stones, silver leaf jasper also encourages willpower, determination and stamina. It’s worn by independent, highly disciplined people–or by people who aren’t highly disciplined but would like to be. Reiki practitioners have been known to use silver leaf jasper as a wholistic or whole-body wellness stone.
Silver Leaf Jasper is an excellent protection stone, especially for travellers (in the physical sense as well as astral travellers). It is a beautiful healing crystal and instills a feeling of wholeness, serenity and being cared for, looked after and nurtured.
It also aids mental clarity and mental functioning.
Physically, Silver Leaf Jasper acts as an energetic tonic for anyone recovering from long term illness and boosts the immune system. It assists the body to restore cellular tissue and has an affinity for restructuring both muscular and cellular tissue. It can be useful in treating urinary system issues, lower digestive system issues and reproductive system tissue dysfunction. It also harmonises mineral assimilation. Historically, Silver Leaf Jasper has been used as the base for energy boosting tonics and elixirs.
