Agate is a stone that has many colours and diversity in the nature. The colours of the agate are the mixture of red, gray, white, blue, brown and green. Used as an ornament object or jewellry, agate is used as a protective object against the negative energy. It is rigid, and the light-transmitting colourful parts have transparent or semi-transparent structure. The stone was given its name from Achates, a Sicilian river.
Agate is a therapeutic stone and can be used as a therapy. The various minerals that the stone contains can be used for healing. For the healing process, the stone should be carried on the body so that the energy, mainly the solar energy, can pass through the stone to the body. The agate, symbolizing the secular success, protects people from the negative energy, and revive the extinct courage. Businessmen are advised to carry agate under their waist (pocket, ring etc.). It increases the self-confidence especially when used as a ring.
