How Unique is this Moss Agate Pendant?
Because Agate is a natural forming mineral, no two Agate stones are exactly alike. When you choose a stone, there is no other stone exactly like it in the world. Think of agate as the snowflake of the crystal world. In the ancient world, agate was used on armour.
Please remember that natural stones have inclusions, and this is what makes your Moss Agate Pendant unique.
What is Agate?
Agate is an umbrella name for several varieties of banded chalcedony. Agate crystals occur in many colours that range from translucent to opaque. Agates are found all over the world. Some agates are geodes, which means they are hollow in the middle, often with crystals inside. Agate is considered a semi-precious gemstone.
Agates grow in many different types of rock, and through many different processes. As such, their hardness can vary greatly but is generally somewhere between a six and an eight on the Mohs scale. Agate is a member of the quartz family of gemstones, and often you will find agates with bands of quartz and chalcedony layered through it. Agates are found all over the world. Africa, Asia, Brazil, Egypt, Germany, England, India, Italy, Mexico, Nepal, Canada, and the United States all have varieties of Agates.
What are the Healing Properties of Agate?
Agate is also a strong healing stone that helps you find your inner strength, stability, and resilience and assists with understanding all the layers that make up our psychology, which allows us to act with love instead of fear. It is food for grounding, balance, and feeling supported in life. Agate crystals are helpful in situations where there have been emotional upheavals and where truth and soundness are needed.

It is often sold for a lower price because it is not hallmarked and the percentage of silver cannot be guaranteed.
