Agate is an excellent stone for rebalancing and harmonising body, mind and spirit. It is believed to cleanse and stabilise the aura, eliminating and transforming negativity. Agate enhances mental function, improving concentration, perception and analytical abilities. It soothes and calms, healing inner anger or tension and creates a sense of security and safety. Agate heals the eyes, stomach and uterus, cleanses the lymphatic system and the pancreas; strengthens blood vessels and heals skin disorders.
