Snake Skin Agate
Joy of Life ~ Strength
Snake Skin Agate helps in facilitating the outward manifestation of the love of life and self. It has been used to assist one in eliminating mundane worries. It can be used to help one to become lost in a crowd, and to fade into the background, when consciously directed, or inversely, can help one find lost things. It has been used to initiate the rise of the Kundalini.
Agate is a name given to a variety of banded chalcedony, a mineral of the quartz group. It is predominantly white, with layers of creamy browns, blacks and grays. Some may include layers of yellow ochre, gold, scarlet and red. Agate is sometimes called the earth rainbow because, in its various forms, the concentric bands in nature form nearly every color the earth can produce, including a colorless form.
The name agate comes from the river Achetes in Sicily, where they were found in ancient times. Agates in general have a slower vibration which supports a lasting connection with the results you are looking for. They stabilize the aura as well as cleansing it of negativity and aid in balancing. Helps one to become more loving. They are used by South American Shaman as a pathway to the “other worlds”.
