Opal Agate is exactly as its name suggests — a form of common opal that contains traces of Agate that form the typical bands you’d find in an agate stone.
This earthy stone exudes peace and confidence and helps one make decisions when a path isn’t always clear. Use Opal Agate during meditation to clear one’s mind and open up new pathways.
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.
