Historical Folklore

This stone was given its name after it was incorrectly assumed that it contained fossilized water snails of the Turritella genus. The snails fossilized in this stone are actually Elimia tenera, a different type of snail.

In ancient Mesopotamia, stones of agate were engraved with seals. These were symbols of power and authority. 

Ancient Romans used agate to create mortar and pestles to grind their medicines. 

Legends state that eagles carry pieces of agate to their nest to protect their young. 

Agate is associated with Archangel Michael. 


The agate family has thousands of members. The key aspects of agate are bands of microscopic crystals. These bands make stable, nurturing crystals that have strong energy. Agates help you to heal emotions such as repressed anger, bitterness, and emotional trauma. These are good stones for those who are willing to put in the work so they can have a strong foundation to start again. Agate aligns the mind, body, spirit, and psyche to help you center and feel calm.
