In addition: Agates are grounding stones, bringing about an emotional, physical and intellectual balance. Agate works slowly but brings great strength, by centering and stabilizing physical energy.

Blue Lace Agate is a wonderful healing stone. Its soft energy is cooling and calming, bringing peace of mind. It is particularly effective for activating and healing the throat, allowing free expression of thoughts and feelings. It also counteracts the repression and suppression of feelings that stem from a fear of being judged and rejected. Judgment is often present in the parent-child relationship, both in childhood and adulthood. As a result, feelings are held back and the lack of self-expression blocks the throat and may affect the chest with a feeling of suffocation. Blue Lace Agate gently dissolves the old pattern of repression and encourages a new mode of expression.
