Grey agate is easily recognisable from grey with white, brown, and light grey layers and patterns. Agate has been popular since ancient times for its diversity, potential healing power, spiritual value, and exceptional beauty. It is included in virtually every known text that describes gemstones and their abilities. The Sumerians were the first to describe the power of these stones, and their texts state that it gave the person a special favour of the gods for those who wore agate.
Grey agate is a crystal with a very calm, gentle and constant energy. It encourages those around it to raise collective consciousness, starting with themselves first. It is also a stone of strength, grounding and protection that will bring you happiness and success.
This crystal provides emotional security, intelligence and maturity. The stone helps break free from negative emotions such as anger and fear, stabilises the aura, and balances Yin and Yang's energies. It helps us focus and encourages us to stay calm even under pressure, conduct honest self-analysis when needed, and be accurate in thinking and concluding. Crystal encourages reflection and continuous improvement of one’s beliefs based on new knowledge and experience.
Gray agate will keep your eyes open so you can see life in true colours, with its positive and negative aspects, without hiding from unpleasant and painful situations. For those who value everything around them only as “white” or “black,” “good,” or “bad,” the crystal will show that there is a grey colour between them that creates a balance of these qualities. No one in this life is just one or the other. The only thing that exists is your approach to certain things, which can quickly change if you look at the environment around you in a broader spectrum.
