Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armor to give
warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give
strength in both battle and physically. Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. However, because it
is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of
energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone, and enhances longevity.
