Red Agate: get to know the Warrior Stone
Agate is a variety of cryptocrystalline quartz that many people confuse with Jasper, being the difference between the two that Agate is translucent and Jasper is opaque. Agate can be found in any colour, being the most frequent grey, white, brown, orange, black and yellow. A “pure” agate is white, grey or blue-grey, but today let’s talk about the Red Agate.
Red Agate, the stability crystal
The name Agate derives from the river Achetes in Sicily, where Agates have been discovered. They have been used since the early Egyptians before 3000BC and also in India since ancient times as jewellery. Red Agate is also called the Warrior’s Stone.
Every crystal brings a different energy and can be used with different purposes. Agate promotes emotional stability and maturity. Its protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. Red Agate promotes lasting connections! It keeps negative energies and vibrations out of the way.
The stability it promotes goes beyond the obvious; for example, it stops the burning desires for unnecessary things and assists those juggling commitments or multiple jobs. On an artist side of life, it helps writers’ express ideas and stabilizes the imagination and inspiration of artists.
It can be used as an amulet when travelling since it promotes security.
