The Crystal of the Day for Tuesday 1 October 2013


The Crystal of the Day for Tuesday 1 October 2013 is Botswana Agate. Botswana agate is sometimes called the “change stone” because of its mystical property of helping one handle change in a positive way. It is said to gently help one make transitions of any kind in a way that change is not as difficult or painful as could be without it; it is a comforting stone. Carrying a bit of Botswana agate in your pocket is said to help one cope easily with the minor changes that life throws at us daily.

Relief from depression and/or grief is another metaphysical energy of Botswana agate. It is said to help us focus on solutions instead of problems, and thereby increases creativity, as well as increasing the power of one’s intuition. Botswana agate is noted in crystal healing to be helpful in overcoming addictions and other self-destructive compulsive behaviour patterns, as well as dealing with repressed emotional issues. As a success stone, it is said to help one achieve and cope with success. It is also a stone of sensuality. In crystal healing it is said to be beneficial to the nervous system and can help rid the body of toxins, as well as help in the healing of broken bones.

Because of the harmonising qualities of agate, and its emotional energies of removing and releasing resentments and bitterness, it is also considered by many to be an excellent stone for helping to heal and improve relationships. Agate can cleanse and stabilise the aura by removing and/or transforming negative energy.

Physically, agate is particularly helpful with tooth and gum issues, stomach problems, physical endurance, and insomnia.
