This Turkish Stick Agate pendant is set in a handmade sterling silver bezel setting with an 18″ sterling silver chain. Agate encourages a sense of reality and pragmatic thinking. Agates with regular designs soothe those who desire peace and harmony, while those with irregular designs can stimulate action and important decision making. Agate overcomes negativity and bitterness of the heart, by healing anger, fostering love, and lending the courage to start over. All items are handmade, with love, in Parker, CO and are from the highest quality materials. Gems, stones and quartz are handpicked to ensure only the best clarifications are used in my jewelry. As with all handmade items, no two are alike and variations in color and shades should be expected. Quartz, gems and stones are known to absorb the cosmic energy from celestial bodies and exert great influence on your body, providing relevant healing properties including but not limited to physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
