Green Agate Meaning
Agate is a very popular stone of protection, especially from the 15th to 19th century, not least because the gemstone is believed to defend its wearer against the Evil Eye, a malevolent being thought to bring various misfortunes. Beside the stone’s power against the Evil Eye, agate is also attributed with a metaphysical property that enhances prudence, making its wearer temperate, restrained and cautious. This latter quality likewise protects a person from misfortune, as it minimizes the risk of accidents and mishaps. In this way agate is consistently described as a stone of prudence, temperance and protection.
In addition, an agate jewelry is said to help its wearer acquire intelligence and sense, as well as make him or her a beautiful speaker, gracious with words and persuasive to others. Green agate, in particular, was a highly prized gemstone in antiquity. Women in Syria drank water poured over green agate to avoid sterility. Hence, in addition to being a stone of protection, green agate was regarded as a stone of fertility, of life.
The green agate necklace is approximately 18 ¼ inches in length. This beaded jewelry is unisex, suitable for both men and women. If worn by women, the necklace’s pendant typically falls at or just below the collarbone, making this green agate jewelry a “princess necklace.” If worn by the average man, the green agate necklace rests at the base of the neck, and accordingly works as choker.
