Stone of the Week: Moss Agate

Moss agate, natural stones

Ethereal and earthy, moss agate is aptly named for the way the tendrils of green in the stone mimic the look of moss in nature. It can range from a solid green to clear with light green inclusions and everything in between.

Historically, moss agate has been used as a talisman for agriculture and abundance. It is said that he who uses this stone will find prosperity. Agate comes in many colors, but the "moss" varietal gets its beautiful hue from deposits of iron, which is why every piece of moss agate is unique and special. And the deep green works perfectly into a fall palette!
