This pendant is special for a few reasons. It was handmade using genuine stones that were either melted down, and cut into small pieces. It then was put together(I wish I knew how!) using an eye for detail and skill to make such a seamless cabochon. I was gifted this cabochon by the husband of a customer. I have held onto it for 3 years, just not knowing what to do with it.
When making this pendant, I did not want to take away from the unique beauty. So I kept it simple, fitting a gold bail to match the gold flakes in the cabochon. So simple and dainty, perfect for everyday wear.
Agate belongs to the quartz family, which makes it a popular crystal for healing, especially due to its composition of silicon dioxide, a mineral that is also found in the human body. The variety of chalcedony bands also help enhance your feelings of stability, which can be incredibly balancing if you’re caught in a cycle of worry and overthinking. It works by connecting you with the gentle vibrations of the Earth, making it a gentle stone with a light, diffused energy. This is why many beginners start with Agate stone in their first collection. With mellow vibrations and a steady rhythm, Agate can bring you a sense of peace and support when you feel scattered or overwhelmed by modern life. Known as the stabilizer, Agate is the stone to call on for support when you need stability and grounding in your life. Along with its supportive energy, the Agate stone has been long admired for its incredible beauty. Agate has a dreamy quality with signature bands made up of mineral deposits layered in a perfectly circular symmetry around its circumference. A combination of igneous rock with silica deposits found in groundwater, the otherworldly bands give this semi-precious stone its trademark appearance. What gives the Agate stone its incredibly powerful grounding abilities is its availability in different colours, including a palette of white, purple, black, gray, yellow, pink, red, and brown. Agate’s soothing and stress-relieving properties help you connect with the energy of the Earth by bringing harmony to your mind, body, and spirit. When you feel unbalanced, Agate healing properties have soft vibrations that can recalibrate and realign you.
