STRENGTH: Black Agate | Silver Embossed Dragons
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. They realign subtle energies that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body and activating linkage points to the chakras that regulate the body's vibrational stasis.
MANTRA: I am filled with the fire of strength and courage.

Having the characteristics of all four elements, earth, air, fire, and water, the dragon symbolizes the unity of opposing forces. These forces include light and dark, sun and moon, masculine and feminine, life and death. As the reptilian embodiment of primordial power, the dragon is associated with fertility, the rising sun and immortality. In the East and pre Christian Europe the dragon was considered a beneficial and protective symbol, and thought to bring good luck. The red dragon is the emblem of Wales.
In China the dragon is a symbol of masculine energy and fertility. They are thought to guard the East and represent the sunrise and spring and rain. They are also symbols of supernatural power and can bestow the wearer with happiness, gifts of spiritual knowledge, and immortality. In Japan they are symbols of rain and have the power of thunder.
In Chinese Astrology people born in the year of the Dragon are considered to be strong willed, fiery, lucky, intelligent, and self reliant.

Black Agate, like all black stones, is a grounding and protective crystal. It gives a calming peace that helps those during a period of bereavement. 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.
