Cherry Agate Description
Cherry Agate is a type of agate that is characterized by its reddish pink to dark red coloration, resembling the colour of cherries. It is a variety of chalcedony mineral, composed of microcrystalline quartz, and is typically found in volcanic rock formations.
The stone's colour is caused by the presence of iron oxide and other minerals within the stone. It often has a translucent to opaque appearance, with unique patterns and banding that make each stone unique.
Cherry Agate is believed to have properties that promote emotional balance and stability. It is said to help with self-confidence, self-acceptance, and to bring a sense of calmness and peace to its wearer. It is also thought to have physical healing properties, particularly in the areas of digestion and circulation.
Cherry Agate is often used in jewellery making, particularly in beaded bracelets and necklaces.
