This Little Beauty Helps See Things From Another Perspective

Purple agate can accomplish many things, a few among them, use for the following effects -- to experience things from another point of view, to protect children, to enhance communication and to make one’s words come from the heart, to protect against childhood illnesses or to speed up recovery from them, to aid one in feeling comfortable in his or her physical body, to realize one’s inner gifts, and to reduce anxiety and aid one in living a worry-free life.

It is said that agate possesses many mystical powers. One of these powers is the ability to permit the user to distinguish between honest and false friends. It can also allow the young to avoid danger, direct violent weather away from the bearer, and avert miscarriages.

Common theory holds that the name agate is in fact a linguistic derivative of the Sicilian River Achates. Regardless, knowledge of its existence has been documented for thousands of years. Not only did the Greek philosopher Theophrastus mention it as early as 300 B.C., but the early Byzantines were said to also have knowledge of how to color it through exposure to heat.

Like many precious and semi-precious stones, agate has been used throughout history for a variety of medicinal purposes. One of the primary uses has been to reduce discomfort in both mother and child during pregnancy. It is also said to be useful for reducing headaches, dizziness, and even impaired balance. A key stipulation however is that the stone must be in physical contact with the skin around the area suffering from the affliction. For example, to combat feverish infections it is important to place the stone on the heart or the throat chakra. This works for any variety of infections or simple inflammation, such as contact with weary or tired eyes.
