Blue banded agate is a form of chalcedony which naturally forms in bands of beautiful colours. It occurs as a cavity filling in lava and can often have wonderful crystals growing inside. An Agate Geode, immersed in dye before cutting, produces random absorption of colour. When they are cut and polished the finished product looks spectacular. There are many natural colours of Agate, each having a slightly different vibration. Agate provides for the balancing of yin-yang energy and is therefore a good overall healing stone that brings balance to all parts of the body. It is a stone that helps create a bridge between the physical and the etheric bodies, seeking truth and courage within. It can aid in lifting depression by opening the door to understanding. It is both energising and grounding. The lymphatic system, the pancreas and the circulatory system all benefit from this mineral by stabilising the aura from the heart chakra downward, grounding dysfunctional energies.
Blue Agate is colour enhanced. Has the same qualities as Agate plus many believe that the intensity of the colour blue harmonises yin and yang energy. Builds self-confidence and raises consciousness and awareness.
