This Week’s Theme: Agate

Karen Ann Brzys, of the Gitche Gumee Museum in Grand Marais, MI, offers us this fine example of a Lake Superior Carnelian Amethyst Agate. It’s a beauty.

As stated on the Museum’s:

Agates are semi-precious gemstones that are a variegated form of chalcedony (pronounced kal-sed’-nee), which is silicon dioxide in the form of microscopic fibrous quartz crystals. Agates naturally develop when an empty pocket inside a host rock fills in molecule-by-molecule, layer-by-layer as these microcrystals self organize to form concentric bands or other patterns.

As posted on CrystalVaults.com:

Agate is helpful to the heart and blood vessels. Wearing an Agate in the middle of the chest strengthens the cardiac muscle, and heals emotional disharmony that prevents acceptance of love.

Inspiration for Today

Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.
– Eleanor Roosevelt

Happy Coloring!
