To get the most of your crystal, we recommend 'charging' and 'cleansing' them in the sun, once per week. All of our crystals are natural, without the use of dyes and gamma-irradiation (heat to induce colour).
All natural crystals possess an amazing energy of natural healing and protection. We recommend having a crystal on you at all times, in your living space, your work space and even under your pillow, while you sleep.

Historically it was placed in water for cooking or drinking to dispel sickness. Agate is a stone of strength.

Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. However, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone, and enhances longevity.

The majority of our crystal pendants are handcarved by villagers in India. Within these villages, many of the women (and men) can not work; yet they possess amazing skills. There is no factory, they simply work from their homes. We're primarily focusing on empowering these amazing people. Unlike here, every cent makes a huge difference to their lives.
