I recently received this beautiful crystal as a gift and right away, I was excited! Not only is this a beautiful crystal, it’s fossilized snail and sea creature patterns connected me instantly with the earth.
Turitella Agate is a variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is rich, earthy brown or black, and recognized by the sea creature and fossilized snail patterns within the stone, or in a thick coating around it.
Turritella Agate is a stone of personal connection with one’s past – ancestry, homeland, and the country from which those ancestors came. As a record keeper crystal, it may be used to gain access to the wisdom of past worlds and past life recall.
It opens communication between the plant and mineral kingdom, providing access to information beneficial in healing the planet. If buried in land that has been neglected or polluted, Turitella Agate cleanses and re-vitalizes. Its healing energies can be projected if placed on a map or photo of an endangered area.
For frequent travelers, Turitella Agate protects against danger, alleviates fears, and keeps the connection to loved ones at home. Agate is especially effective against traffic accidents.
An excellent fertility crystal, Turitella Agate increases the chances of success with IVF, artificial insemination and other fertility treatments.
Agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. It is a great crystal to use during pregnancy. Agate also helps new mothers avoid the “baby blues” sometimes experienced after giving birth.
Agate stops the burning desires for things we do not need, and assists those juggling commitments or multiple jobs. It helps writers express ideas in marketable form, and helps young children learn to walk and not fall as they get older. Agate also promotes marital fidelity.
Turritella Agate Physical Healing Energy
Turitella Agate can be used to eliminate fatigue, and is helpful in the absorption of nutrients and vitamin A, zinc, calcium, and magnesium.
Turitella Agate may relieve swelling of the hands and feet, and distention of the abdomen (together with a proper diet). It is beneficial in problems related to aging, digestion, gastro-enteritis, and pain associated with gallstones.
Agate enhances mental function by improving concentration, perception, and analytical abilities.
Agate is helpful to the heart and blood vessels. Wearing an Agate in the middle of the chest strengthens the cardiac muscle, and heals emotional disharmony.
A cold Agate placed on the forehead is generally effective in curing fever. (If the fever returns, however, consult a doctor.) Agate may also reduce the symptoms of epilepsy, and for some people guards against sleepwalking.
Turritella Agate Emotional Healing Energy
Turitella Agate helps diminish a superiority complex, dispelling the pomposity within an individual. It dissolves negative thoughts, and encourages balance during hardship and transitional times.
Turitella Agate facilitates healing of past grievances that stand in the way of healthy relationships, and carried in a pouch or pocket can unlock deep-seated traumas manifesting as physical symptoms and phobias.
Agate is beneficial in self-analysis and uncovering hidden circumstances that might interfere with well-being. It promotes self-acceptance and confidence, encouraging the speaking of one’s own truth. Agate overcomes bitterness of the heart by healing anger, fostering love, and lending the courage to start over.
Turritella Agate Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy
Agate stabilizes the aura, eliminating and transforming negative energies. Its cleansing effect is powerful at all levels.
Turitella Agate stimulates the Base Chakra. The Base, or Root Chakra, is located at the base of the spine, and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When physically out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as lethargy, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation. When its spiritual energies are out of balance, you will feel flighty, disconnected from reality, and distant. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical body regains its strength and stamina, and the spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one’s own power. It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership.
