Crystal Focus - Agate

February 26, 2015 0 Comments


Agate is THE stone everyone should have for protection. As well as a protective stone, agate's most noticeable properties are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, healing, and calming. It is also known as a good luck stone.

It is known to enhance creativity and strengthen the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. Agate also increases energy, however, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone, and enhances longevity.



The stone itself is a banded form of finely-grained, microcrystalline Quartz. The lovely color patterns and banding make this translucent gemstone very unique. Agates can have many distinctive styles and patterns, but each Agate is unique in its own habit, with no two Agates being the same.

niin designer, Jeanine Hsu, has long had a love for the agate stone and has used it in a variety of ways across the niin collections.  Jeanine said, "there is something about the versatility and original beauty of the agate stones.  Each has it's own personality and strength,"
