Naturally formed from mineral deposits in ancient lava streams, geodes are characterized by a rocky exterior with beautiful, striated agates and druzy crystal quartz bands within. Unearthed in Brazil, our corner-sliced agate pieces — part hand-polished, part rough — each has its own size, shape, color, distinctive organic patterns and natural imperfections. In the world of healing crystals, agates are considered strength stones that balance and harmonize the body, mind and spirit. Believed to cleanse and stabilize the aura while warding off negativity, agate are said to also enhance mental function by improving focus, perception and cognitive abilities.
