Brazilian Agate/Carnelian

Chakra - Sacral

 

Brazilian Agate is predominantly orange Carnelian with occasional bands of white or lighter orange and cream/brown. It brings about an emotional, physical and intellectual balance and aids in centring and stabilising physical energy. Brazilian Agate harmonises yin and yang. It is a soothing and calming stone which works slowly but brings great strength. It can bring hidden information to light. 

The agates from Brazil are mostly mined from decomposed volcanic ash and basalt from the late Permian age.  In Rio Grande do Sul the "agate mines" are normally just plowed fields in which loose agates are found and collected. Brazilian agates are very colourful stones with some of the most beautiful inclusion and structures imaginable.

History

Decorative Carnelian (orange banded agate) has been uncovered from the ancient world since 6,500 years ago. Ancient Egyptians associated Carnelian with the Goddess Isis and her female energies. The Egyptian Book of the Dead describes how Carnelian was placed in tombs for life after death and King Tutankhamun's funeral mask included Carnelian stones. Hieroglyphic texts from the Egyptian Book of the Dead were engraved on Carnelian stones.

Hebrew and Arab cultures used Carnelian to prevent illnesses.
