VISTA | Black Agate Lotus Flower | Buddha Word Bracelet
Crystals were created as the earth formed and they have continued to metamorphose as the planet itself has changed. They are the earth's DNA, a chemical imprint for evolution. They are miniature storehouses containing the records of the development of the earth over millions of years, and bearing the indelible memory of the powerful forces that shaped it. Their crystalline structure can absorb, conserve, focus and emit energy, especially on the electromagnetic waveband.
Crystals make excellent jewelry for both men and women. Wearing gems used to be a royal or priestly prerogative. The high priest of Judaism wore a breastplate set with precious stones. It was much more than a badge of office; it conveyed power to the wearer. As far back as the Stone Age, men and women wore crystal jewelry and talismen. They had a protective as well as decorative function, guarding their wearer from harm.
Crystals have been used to heal and bring balance, working through resonance and vibration. Crystals are said to heal holistically - that is to say, they work on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of being.
The gemstone property information here is to use as you see fit, but is not to take the place of professional medical care. Crystals, Gemstones and Talismen can negate, protect, encourage, strengthen, and balance and promote healing and positivity. Their effects can be extraordinary, but use in addition to medical advice, and not as a substitute for proper care.

The Buddha is a symbolic as well as spiritual representation of the enlightened one's wisdom and knowledge.
Buddhists find that gazing upon the image of the Buddha gives them a clear role model in their own paths toward enlightenment.
Aspirants gain inspiration as they contemplate the qualities embodied by the Buddha during his lifetime.
In Buddhism, the bud of the lotus symbolizes potential.
The lotus flower represents an awakening, spiritual growth, and enlightenment.
Just as the lotus flower emerges from the muddy water clean, the lotus also represents purity of body, speech, and mind.
The lotus could be thought of as an awakened mind, which grows naturally toward the warmth and light of truth, love and compassion.
The lotus may appear fragile on the surface, but it is flexible and strong, securely anchored under the surface of the water.
It is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off its petals.
The lotus is known to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness.
Black Agate, like all black stones, is a grounding and protective crystal.
It gives a soothing peace that helps those during a period of grief.
Black Agate gives inner strength to move on and is also very helpful in keeping the peace in stressful households.
This calming stone will keep one steady when faced with practical decision-making or when doling out ‘tough love’.
This is a stone for grounding and centering the energies of the Root or Base Chakra. Use for self control, grounding, resilience, quiet power, invisibility, peace and anxiety.
Black Agate is considered a receiving stone and is used for calming, soothing, inward meditation and reflection.
When used for Chakra healing and balancing, Black Agate represents the element Earth, and is therefore related to our survival instincts, and to our sense of grounding and connection to our bodies and the physical plane.
Ideally, when using black stones at the Root Chakra, they bring us health, prosperity, security and dynamic presence.
