Hand-Sized Large Agate from Scotland

On a fairly recent trip out we came across a hand-sized agate that looks like it might have been in the seam. This large agate has a bit of everything, with some fine outer banding in white and red around the outer skin. With fortification in evidence and this piece being of considerable size and weight, we decided to leave it as one specimen for someone with a specialist agate collection.

This giant agate weighs roughly 950 grams. It is bigger than my hand. It has deep red and orange in it, as well as quartz teeth and pockets with clear chalcedony in it. There are pale blu bands around the outer edge.

Agate from Ayrshire is valued for its mix of mosses, eyes, and banded patterns. This Scottish rock will need to be cut open to see the real goodness inside.

This came from a trip in a stream in South Ayrshire back in 2021. I kept hold of it because it is massive, but it is time to start shifting some of this crystal collection. It's getting out of control.

What does Agate Mean in Crystal Healing?

In crystal healing and energy use, agate is said to represent good luck. Wearing agate or keeping some in your pocket, will bring you luck when you are going through hard times. Wear an agate necklace to that job interview and be sure to keep a fragment of it in your glove compartment.

Agate is a fun stone because the layers have different chalcedony colours wrapped in a bubbly skin. It has a relaxed, positive vibration, that takes its time to gently seep into your being. Once it’s in there, however, it can heal troubled dreams, help ebb you into meditations easier, and bring spiritual calmness.
