Agates are part of the chalcedony family.  The main differentiation is that agates are banded forms of chalcedony.  Technically Moss Agate is not really an agate, because it’s not banded.  Rather, it is a chalcedony with moss colored dendritic inclusions.  Moss Agates are commonly available and are most often found in India, the United States, and Australia.  In ancient times, Moss Agate was a magical healing stone for tribal priests.  It has been used to heal wounds, remove poisons from the body, and protect against venom.

Moss Agate is stabilizing and grounding.  It works with both the root chakra and the heart chakra.  It attracts abundance, boosts self-esteem, and reduces stress & fear.  It increases optimism, leading to higher levels of trust & hope and assisting those experiencing depression or going through difficult circumstances.  Moss Agate balances emotions and improves communication.

In addition, Moss Agate is a stone of new beginnings.  Meditating with Moss Agate about a goal or project increases successful achievement.  It helps you to release the old and start fresh.  Another way it helps with new beginnings is as a birthing crystal, assisting midwives, reducing pain, lessening fear, and aiding in childbirth.

.

Moss Agate also has wonderful physical healing benefits.  It is known for aiding in general wellness, helping you to recover more quickly if you are ill, and combating long-term illnesses.  It is anti-inflammatory, increases lymphatic flow, and boosts immunity.  It can help you heal from colds, flu, fevers, skin infections, and other general infections & illnesses.
