Agates are banded chalcedony (mineral quartz) and come in numerous varieties.  They are predominantly formed within volcanic and metamorphic rocks.  The name Agate originated from the Sicilian Achetes river.  Agates were found in this river region during ancient times.


Sakura (Cherry Blossom) Agate’s calming benefits make it ideal to have this crystal around in stressful environments.  Add it as a decorative addition to your workspace or where it in a necklace close to your heart chakra.  Carry a pocket-size Sakura Agate to help keep your focus.    


To maximize the vibrational benefits of your crystal, it is essential to occasionally cleanse and recharge them.  There are multiple ways to cleanse a crystal, such as running under water for 1 minute (hard crystals only), smudging with sage, burying it in the Earth for 24 hours, placing it under moonlight overnight, or placing it on selenite for 6 hours.  After the crystal is cleansed, it is recommended to charge/program it with your intentions by meditation, prayer, or some form of visualization.  How you choose to charge it is up to you! Activating your crystal is a personal experience, so use whatever method you feel is best.
