DAY 22 | Black Agate Skull

DAY 22 | Black Agate Skull

Why a skull?

Pirate flags and other symbolic pieces have always been what represent tough people.

In the now, it might not translate to fighting and death, but it most certainly can mean bravery.

When you look at bikers and other people who wear or have the skull in them, for them, the meaning is quite different, if not inspiring.

It is not to mean that they are a threat to others. It means they can bravely withstand what life throws at them. It is about resilience in life and comradery in the membership club or group they’re in.

In your own right, having some battle scars that life brings can warrant wanting to adopt skull imageries. There are those who, after surviving a near-death experience, would want to show that they are tough and that they’ve made it through.

Agate is a stone of strength.

It was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armour to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength in both battle and physically.

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.

Agate is a very protective stone. It is especially protective for children.
