Feather Agate — sometimes referred to as Plume Agate — has striking inclusion lines that tend to resemble long, flowing feathers.
Feather agate promotes confidence and encourages one to speak his or her truth. This stone aids in overcoming negativity — especially when encountering trauma and PTSD symptoms.
Agate is also one of the oldest stones on earth. It was given its name between the 3rd and 4th centuries, B.C. by the Greek philosopher Theophrastus. While many agate specimens grow on pre-existing rocks, agate itself has found many uses when separated from its host — including use as precision pendulums, mortar and pestles and for leather burnishing tools.
