Roots of the Spirit, Branches of the Heart
Far into a secluded forest, a mighty Oak tree stands tall with its astonishing roots extending deep down into the earth. The steady stream of water from a nearby brook circles the tree’s base, providing fertile soil for its roots to grow. Birds chirp softly as they nest in the Pines above, and the sun sits effortlessly in a vast sky of blue. This unfaltering, tranquil heaven deep in the forest is where Gray Agate’s essence can be found.
Gray Agate is the stabilizer. It radiates a soft strength and vibrates on a gentler frequency than most other stones. Agate acquired its name from the Achates River—one of the largest rivers in Sicily, where it was first discovered by the philosopher Theophrastus. Its distinctive beauty comes from the colorful bands that develop on top of one another, creating a unique arrangement of layered stripes. This one-of-a-kind design forms from the Agate’s makeup of igneous rock and silica deposits of groundwater. Depending on the impurities within the groundwater’s formation, the bands vary from a range of colors including white, gray, red, pink, yellow, and black.
