Agate Geodes; these are a powerful collection of stones. Created in browed holes left by animals or the cracks in the earth created by trees, these stones bring good luck, protection and growth.
The rock itself is available in a range of colours, more common are grey, white, brown, pink and salmon, red, organge, blank and yellow. They can be found in shades or green and blue, but those are much more rare. I really like these stones for a decorative standpoint as well because the a singe piece can be found in a collection of colours, layered into the rock creating charactor and life. In research of this stone each color variation is sopose to offer different benefits, most of which range through awareness, protection, luck and decisiveness in decision making.
Like anything you bring into your home, I always suggest choosing a piece that speaks to you, if you are drawn to something there is a reason for it. It if you then decide to presue further explanation of the colours and their benifits I would encourage you then to look into it further.
My favourite thing about this rock is the ability to aquire it with its natural outer edge, with its refined inner layers exposed, some may be polished and some left with the inner crystals. The introduction to earth elements in your decor really do offer a ying and yang element. For those of you who believe in its effects, it is something to consoder.
There are tones and tones of different stones out there, all with fifferent means and benifits. Something like this you could really have fun with. you could find a decoritive bowl you like and place it in a focal place like a coffee table, and slwoly collect differnet stones that mena somthing to you. As the collection grows, you are collecting all the postivie benifits from the stones, and it could also become a fun little conversation piece when entertaining.
I love elements that have a duel purpose. Remeber decorating is creating an impression, you are exporessing yourslef when creating the prefcet living envioronment. Adding natural elements like rocks and minerals have such a visually gruonding effect, and like many rock experts will say, they also give off some great energy too.
