Moss Agate brings peace and stability to the emotional body. It is especially helpful to those who experience extreme mood swings and those addicted to emotional drama in their lives. It soothes volatile tempers and promotes patience, wholeness, and inner calm. [Ahsian, 13] Moss Agate utilizes the energy of green. It is a “growth crystal” – a powerful conduit of the earth’s Life Force of birth, development, and creation, and of the power of nature’s constant renewal. It is a potent aid in nurturing, whether of fledgling family relationships or a new business venture. Green crystals are perfect for keeping a venture on course, a project on schedule, and life on track. Lighter Green crystals promote spiritual growth and a renewed commitment to a higher purpose. Those of a darker hue are talismans of physical growth and strength, and safety in travel. Moss Agate was used as a talisman to make warriors strong and victorious, and for protection against poisonous snakes and scorpions.  Agate amulets were worn in antiquity to guard against all dangers and to enable the wearer to vanquish earthly obstacles, such as high winds and lightning. [Kunz, 51] Ancient seafarers used Agate in amulets of protection from the fury of the surging ocean. [Kunz, 39] Agates are Seeker Transformer crystals. Seekers contain the crystal energy structure that aligns the natural energy of the crystal to the natural power of the human mind to find the way to new horizons and new capabilities. They’re pointers, directors, and compasses; the fresh start crystals. These are talismans of the scientist, the adventurer, the hunter, wanderer, and explorer. They’re also crystals of the student and the researcher.  Transformer crystals enhance efforts to change our situations, prospects, health, outlook or relationships. By transforming ourselves we transform our lives. We learn to dance, speak a new language, grow stronger, or become a better spouse or child. Seeker crystals with the earth power of the Transformer are excellent talismans to aid our efforts to grow, develop new capabilities and change our lives.
