Physical Characteristics: Agate geode that's been cut to reveal the inside and to provide flat surfaces. Not suggested to store in direct sunlight. A variety of chalcedony in the quartz family, a silicon dioxide. Hardness of 7.
Metaphysical Properties: Agate has a lower frequency and therefore can be more subtle than other stones. It can be very useful in balancing energies and assisting with persistence and completion. It protects against negative energies. NOTE: These bookends may not be able to support the weight of many large, heavy books. They would be fine for smaller books or fewer larger books.
