Moss Agate is often called the Gardener’s Stone. It is tied to the earth, agriculture, and our hearts. Those who work in the fields of botany, agriculture in general, or those who just have an affinity for plants will benefit from having Moss Agate in their crystal toolkit.
We often discuss energy as masculine or feminine but I prefer to think of it as projective or receptive. Moss Agate has a soft, welcoming feel due to its receptive energy. This means that it has nurturing qualities, which should not be a surprise with the agriculture connection.
Agates come in a variety of colors. They are formed from quartz which typically appears in bands or waves. Agate is a softer stone landing at a 7 on the Mohs scale. This means that Agates, like other quartz crystals can scratch glass fairly easily.
All Agates have a connection to earth energy. This makes Agate a good stone to reach for when grounding is needed. It can support a sense of security and connection, a sense of having roots, figuratively but perhaps literally as well.
Agates come in many colors and from many parts of the world including Europe, Brazil, and the United States. Each color and form of Agate has its own characteristics in addition to the grounding benefits inherent in Agate.
Moss Agate is clear or white with green and sometimes red areas that appear like moss within the stone. Polished slices can look like an inviting garden. They make beautiful jewelry and may be the perfect talisman for plant people.
Green supports and connects with the energy center at our heart. This relates emotionally to love and compassion. Physically, this energy center relates to our chest, breast, upper back, arms, and hands.
Clear or white is tied to our upper energy center which supports our connection to Spirit, whatever that may look like for you.
Moss Agate may also contain shades of red, rust, or orange. These colors support the lower energies that make us feel grounded and centered when they are in balance. These energy centers are connected to our feet and legs, pelvic area and lower abdomen.
Just as it is easy to see the beauty of Moss Agate, the nature of the stone is such that is helps us to see the beauty in all things. This includes ourselves. Using Moss Agate may increase self-confidence, allowing for more comfort in speaking one’s truth. It may also increase acceptance of ourselves just as we are.
To use Moss Agate, consider the areas that you wish to support. Wearing it as a pendant that hangs near the heart center or using in a crystal elixir are two of the ways that I personally like to use Moss Agate.
The elixir is added to Kitchen Witch Herbals Personal Growth soap before I cook it. I also place a few drops in my drinking water or a foot bath, and in the water that I use for my plants. I love how versatile it is.
