Facts and Folklore about Moss Agate - Things to Know...
Moss Agate is a semi-precious stone in the agate family, which is formed from silicon dioxide. Green minerals included in the silicon give moss agate its characteristic "mossy" look, which some also describe as looking like blue cheese.

Despite its name and appearance, there is no organic or mossy components in this stone - it is purely mineral based. Its colors can range from dark green to rusty orange, opaque and cloudy grey to almost perfectly clear.

Moss agate is found in many different regions of the world, and is also known as "Mocha Stone".

Spiritually, moss agate is considered the most powerful of all of the agates, and a stone used by warriors. It is believed to help balance emotional energy, increase endurance and improve concentration. When used in jewelry, it is believed to help bring friends and fortune to the wearer and is connected to the Heart Chakra. It can be used to help bring communication and connection to the "Plant Kingdom" and is considered useful in achieving success in crop agriculture and gardening.

Other varieties of agate include eye, tree, fire, snakeskin, blue lace and carnelian.
