White banded agate
White Agate is an eye-catching stone. This chalcedony-grade mineral is formed with various inclusions and bands that create different opaque or translucent layers. As the lava moved slowly through the rocks, pressure, high temperature, and the weight formed the places where these crystals formed over many years. Today, they can be found worldwide with the largest mines in Brazil, the Czech Republic, the United States, Africa and India.
The white colour of Agate is associated with peace, purity and protection. It will ease your thoughts and help you feel better emotionally. Like other agate-grade crystals, this harmonises the energies of Ying and Yang, thus helping to find a balance of life between evil and good. The stone will help you get to know yourself better and cleanse yourself from dark emotions such as jealousy, bitterness, resentment, anger, and so on. These feelings create energy blocks from which various ailments develop.
White Agate promotes acceptance and forgiveness. It is believed to stimulate the crown chakra and help its wearer feel calmer and more focused, to be here and now at the moment. Energetics believe the crystal helps solve mental problems, including everyday challenges such as frustration and anxiety. As you meditate with the stone, it will be easier for you to call on your guardian angel and spiritual leaders.
