An intensely pink stone first began singing to me about a year ago at at time when I was healing an injury to my hand. It appeared to me in a dream and come morning, this vivid gem led me right to it. I would probably not have thought to pick up a dyed stone otherwise. I didn’t even think I had any. It ended up being a great comfort, helping with easing the pain as well as with accelerating the mending.
I am most often drawn to the raw, natural stones. Truthfully, I did feel a bit of a resistance to working with a treated stone. Not because I don’t see the beauty in stones that have been altered by humans, but I tend to go for the ones that came straight from the earth, untouched, rough, a little sullied by silt and sand. My experience with dyed agate made me more open to the crystals of all kinds.

It is believed to have been among man's earliest possessions. Egyptians were mining Agate as early as 3500 B.C.

It assists in looking at oneself and ones circumstances concerning ones well being. Provides perceptiveness to situations, awakening ones inherent talents and adroitness.

Chalcedony vibrates to 9 and is the Elemental Astrological signs of Cancer and Sagittarius. Chalcedony balances the energy of the body, mind, emotions and spirit. It is a stone to encourage "brotherhood" among all, symbolizing benevolence and good will, stemming from the stone's nurturing energy. It alleviates hostilities, irritability and melancholy. It enhances generosity, responsiveness and receptivity. Chalcedony was used as a sacred stone by the Native American Indians to promote stability within the ceremonial activities of the tribe.
