This beautiful, translucent deep green stone goes back to the Egyptians. At least 3,000 years ago, they were using agate for seals, rings, and decorating vessels. Agate is named after the Achates River (now called the Dirillo) on the island of Sicily, in the Mediterranean, an ancient source of this gemstone. The art of dyeing it into vibrant colors began with the Romans.
Even before we knew about Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art of placement and color, most of us knew we felt better when we had green plants and trees around us. According to Feng Shui, that's because green is a benevolent, humanistic color.
In this stone, the spiritual power of green is combined with that of agate. According to modern healers who use stones in healing, green agate increases compassion, generosity and a keen sense of justice, along with enhancing mental and emotional flexibility, improving decision-making and resolving disputes. It also encourages these traits in others.
