Beyond this, it is said that crystals and gemstones have different energies that can be used to enhance your own energetic vibrations. Each gemstone is known for its unique 'energetic' properties.

Banded Agate is known as the ‘earth rainbow’ and is a healing stone of calm, good luck and wealth. It has a gentle energy that works slowly to bring stability and balance in many aspects of one’s life. Agate tends to find the cause of a problem rather than the symptoms. It can improve mental function and help bring clarity. It is also helpful in overcoming negative emotions.
Tip: Banded Agate is most effective when worn for long periods of time because it slowly radiates its healing energy. Place in full moon moonlight to energise.
Historical Uses/Folklore: In ancient Mesopotamia, agate was engraved with seals and were symbols of power and authority.
