The Australian Agate
Be it the opal, the diamond or even the sapphire, Australia is known for quite a few gemstones and their use as various types of jewellery. Agate geode has a quartz centre, which makes it fit not only for jewellery, but also as perfect display stone. Most agates form as nodules from volcanic rock or ancient lava where the combination of stone and different chemicals causes a unique variation in colour.
The stone can be found in the 2 major cities of Australia, Queensland and New South Wales, making it a very popular stone all over Australia. Besides the general characteristics of agate and its uses as jewellery, Australian agate is popular for far more than the aesthetic properties it holds. Recommended even by some physicians, agate jewellery can benefit not just your wellbeing, but it can also be effective in balancing your anxieties and stress levels.
If you’re not sure that buying a piece of agate jewellery in Australia is for you, there’s absolutely no need to worry. If it suits you better, you can even choose to keep the natural stone as a display piece. Although Australian agate jewellery is generally recommended due to its malleability, some people believe turning it into jewellery may hinder its performance or even take the power out of the stone.
Whether you choose to use agate as a display piece or as a piece of lucky jewellery, it’s important to understand the impact it can have on you. Gemstones aren’t just jewellery, they’re much more than that. Every stone has its own focus, level of impact and type of people it will benefit. Not every gemstone is made for everyone, which is exactly why you must do thorough research before buying a gemstone.
Australian agate is recommended for the zodiac signs Virgo and Gemini and holds the numerological vibration number 7.

- Bulls-eye agate is generally black and white in colour and helps eliminate fear and bring out the best in a person even in the worst situations
- White agate is also known as the ‘ultimate pregnancy stone’ and helps protect the mother and baby from any harm throughout the pregnancy
All of the different forms of agate can be found either in the form of display stones or as jewellery across Australia.
