Agate is a cryptocrystalline variety of silica, made up of mostly chalcedony. It has a very fine grain, and often has a banded appearance. It was named by a Greek philosopher, who discovered it in what is now Sicily. Banded Agate gets its name from the distinct banding patterns found in this variety of Agate.
This particular crystal skull is a predominantly light colored Banded Agate and is full of eye catching variation. The patterns swirled throughout the skull are a one-of-a-kind, striking creamy white color, and they are contrasted against light grey, and pale, sandy brown. There is plenty of depth in this piece; you would be the envy of every collector around with this remarkable Banded Agate crystal skull!
Agates are thought to be grounding, stabilizing stones that are ideal for emotional, physical and mental balance. They are thought to improve concentration, acceptance of self, and letting go of internalized anger. Agates take you through the layers of yourself, and help you to learn more about who you are, letting go of blockages, and discovering what paths you should be exploring.
