Agate is a relatively common stone that may be found around the world. Agate is a member of the chalcedony/ quartz family of stones. Agate comes in hundreds of different varieties and colours.
Agates are believed to have been formed millions of years ago during volcanic eruptions. The volcanic lava flows left cavities filled with gas. As the flows cooled, these cavities allowed for mineral bearing solutions to enter and the combinations of these solutions along with heat, pressure and millions of years allowed the agate to form. Agate will resemble a potato on the outside, the stone must then be cut or sliced to see the beautiful colors inside.
Agate is said to strengthen the body and mind and when worn will give the wearer a sense of courage. It is also said to be a powerful healer.
Druzy can be found worldwide, but they are more commonly associated with agates and various types of quartzes. Druses come in a wide range of colors including green, purple, blue, brown, and pinks. The color will vary depending on the other minerals associated with the crystals.
These small crystals may help deliver positive energy to the body and help you with your dreams. Druses are considered by some to give you an energy boost.
