Stone Origin: Agate has one of the oldest historical traditions of any healing stone. It is included in virtually every known lapidary, texts which describe gemstones and their powers. Archaeological evidence amply shows that Agates have been treasured since the very earliest times. Agates have been found in many Stone Age graves and appear to have been kept either for their beauty or, perhaps, for their energetic power. Early lapidaries, dating as far back as 3000 BCE, referenced seals, rings, beads, and other ornaments which were carved out of Agate. The Sumerians were the first to describe the power of stones, and their texts state that wearing Agate gave a person special favor with the gods. The name “Agate” was first used by the Greek writer Theophrastus who suggested that all Agates came from the Achates River (today known as the Dirillo River).

Stone Properties: Gray Agate is particularly good at helping us see “the shades of gray” that often exist. Gray Agate encourages quiet contemplation and a willingness to refine beliefs based on new knowledge and experiences. Gray Agate is a calming and soothing stone that brings comfort, especially to those that have suffered from any sort of trauma. It can stabilize emotional turmoil, improve concentration and clarify perception. Gray Agate helps us remember the importance, thoughts and feelings have on our long-term well being. Gray Agate reminds us to be cautious about emotional reactions, and encourages anayltical analysis.
