Flower Agate is a crystal that was recently discovered in Madagascar and is rapidly gaining popularity. It is a translucent stone composed of agate with opaque chalcedony inclusions that often look like flowers, making it very feminine and unique in appearance. It can be found most commonly in shades of light pink, but can include shades of red, brown, orange, and green with white formations. Flower agate was found with carnelian, pink amethyst and chlorite inclusions. It is also sometimes found with druzy crystals.

Flower Agate is the crystal of power and personal development. These stones often resemble fields of flowers. The circles and dots are said to represent the seeds and the floral plumes represent the flower. It reminds us that we start as seeds before we can flower and grow. Flower Agate helps us imagine the process of growing up, honoring and appreciating every part of the process. Considering all of this, Flower Agate is a very powerful stone of manifestation. It helps us reach our highest potential, protecting us from fears and self-doubt. Her energy ignites a passion to pursue our dreams and live life to the fullest.

The heart chakra is the center of love, connectedness, empathy, and emotional openness. It is what connects us to others. The root chakra is the center of vitality, stability and security. Feelings of safety, dignity and security come from this energy center. By connecting these two chakras, Flower Agate helps us feel secure enough to give and receive love. This promotes healthy and calming relationships, whether romantic, family or friendly. Flower Agate gives us the courage to be open and accept emotional vulnerability. By meditating with Flower Agate, you will find a sense of deep appreciation for the world and the people around you.

Flower Agate helps us bridge the gap between emotions and reality by activating and connecting our heart and root chakras together. This unique effect can best be experienced through deep meditation, while focusing only on your emotional body and its current needs. By doing this

exercise, you will begin to free yourself from the deep pain that has clung to your heart and help you look towards the path of self-improvement. The energies of Flower Agate resonate with your heart and can help expose that damaging and sometimes traumatic pain you may still be carrying. Some of us go about our daily lives unaware of the extra weight we are carrying, and the consequences this weight has on our physical and mental health. By releasing the restraints you may have unknowingly imposed on yourself, you can rekindle the undying love that we all have the ability to release. This pure and undeniably loving energy is a direct result of working with Flower Agate.

The soothing and nurturing energies of Flower Agate will help you realize that everything happens for a reason, even in times of doubt. It helps us remember how interconnected every living thing on earth is – our thoughts, actions and emotions affect everyone around us as well as ourselves.
