Skulls often illicit a range of reactions in people – many are captivated by their uniqueness and beauty while others may be more hesitant to work with them due to the natural association of their shape with the macabre. However, skull carvings carry not only the energy of the crystal from which they are carved, but they also bring with them the encoded, ancient knowledge of our ancestors and civilizations from millennia before. Utilize these beautiful skulls in meditation, place them in your energy field, or keep them on an altar.
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 Achates in Sicily, where they were found in ancient times.
