Fire Agate is known as the “Spiritual Flame of the Universe.” Full of mystery and wonder, it first catches our eye with its unique translucent shades of reds and browns until we get a little closer and witness what appears to be a real flame in shades of reds, greens and oranges. It has a direct connection to the Fire Element and was even studied by Alchemist’s whom believed it contained the essence of fire itself. Fire Agate offers us strength encouraging us to take decisive action in our life. It emboldens courage and fearlessness allowing us to we revisit our deepest desires that we’ve pushed aside as the years have gone by. It encourages us to trust that we are always safe and protected, not just physically, but emotionally as well. It is a great stone for those of us who tend to let others push them around or who stay silent when someone is offending them. Courage to speak our truth and express our feelings to the offender empowers our spirit, our connection to the Divine and our higher-self!
