Black Agate, a variety of banded Chalcedony, forms from silica deposits (primarily quartz) in volcanic rock. Its dark color stems from the large amount of iron oxides included during its slow crystallization. Enchanted Crystal has sourced these varieties from Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, an area well known for it's volcanic formations and deposits. While shaped and polished, these are not treated, often done to increase the visibility of agate striping or banding. Because of this, any banding that is visible may be faint or less prevalent than typically seen with agate varieties.

Metaphysically, Black Agate is considered a stone of protection and strength. It helps alleviate stress by grounding and stabilizing the spirit, and it repels negative energy while promoting emotional stability. This stone is valued for enhancing self-control and fostering inner peace, making it beneficial for meditation and improving mental clarity.

All crystals sourced responsibly and packaged with care and intention.
