Black agate necklace
The black agate is found all over the word, predominantly in Brazil, Mexico, the United States, Uruguay, and Madagascar.
The name of agate comes from the Achates River, currently called the Dirillo river, located south of the province of Sicily, in Italy, where it's said that the first of this gemstone was found.
Compared to the red agate or the blue lace agate, the black agate is one of the rarest variants of agate stone. Its tones range from black to dark brown, through the greys. The black agate is widely valued in the field of high-end jewelry for its rarity, simplicity and indisputable elegance.
The black agate is used for its grounding, balancing, and centering effects. It's closely connected to the Root chakra and, like all black stones, it's also a protective crystal.
It's said that wearing jewelry made from this gemstone will bring you peace, balance your positive and negative energy, relieve anxiety, help build courage, and provide protection during hard times. Some people wear them during periods of bereavement for the calming peace they bring.
With their hot flow of energy, they're often used to help the reproductive system. They're also excellent as a healing crystal to help with various health challenges, such as respiratory issues for example.
