Madame Z's Corner: Tree Agate

Madame Z provides monthly posts featuring a different healing stone each month. She gathers her info from many different sources including the books: The Pocket Book of Stones; The Way of the Green Witch; Healing Crystals and Gemstones; The Essential Guide to Crystals, Minerals, and Stones; and Grimoire for a Green Witch; the websites: That Crystal Site; Wings of Spirit; and Healing Crystals for You; as well as relying on personal experience. Healing stones are not a substitute for medical treatment. Anyone with serious medical or emotional issues should consult with a health care professional. When purchasing a healing stone, it is best to buy the stone you are drawn to. Healing stones should be cleansed and charged periodically. We cleanse our personal stones at least once a month, and sometimes more often if we feel they need it. Cleansing can be accomplished by holding the stone in a stream of water. A natural stream is best, but since most of us do not have access to one, filtered water is a good substitute. Stones that include metals should not be placed in water because of the risk of rust. These stones can be placed in dirt or smudged with white sage. To recharge the stones, place in a sunny window or in moonlight for a few hours.

Our spotlight stone for November is Tree Agate. Like most green color stones, tree agate is considered a good stone for helping one to connect with nature. It is thought to reduce arrogance and to help remind one that they are a part of the whole. Tree Agate is believed to help one stay grounded; and also to have a calming effect on the nervous system. It is thought to bring a feeling of inner peace, warmth, and tranquility. Tree Agate has a gentle energy which works slowly to bring about change. This stone is thought to be most effective when combined with other stones, such as ruby zoisite or chrysoprase.
Physically, tree agate is thought to assist in cleansing and detoxifying the body. It is also believed to be beneficial for the feet and legs, and to aid the kidneys and bladder.
Magickally, tree agate is associated with wealth, wisdom, and self work. This delightful stone is even believed to be beneficial to house plants.
Tree agate is primarily a heart chakra stone, but is also associated with the crown and root chakras.
Our personal experience with tree agate tells us this is a very gentle and calming stone, It seems to bring a feeling of warmth, love, and patience to the wearer.
Cleanse tree agate with warm water and charge in sunlight.
