Turritella Agate is a spiritual crystal, deeply connected to the earth and home, to one's personal roots and ancestry, even the events of one's past. It is a survival stone, one of strength and protection. Ancient life held within its form lends the power of wisdom and healing.

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.

The name Agate comes from the Achetes River in Sicily, where Agates were first found. Usually banded in layers, or stripes, some varieties have "eye" markings, or specks of color, some have fossilized inclusions, and others are solid. Called the earth rainbow, the concentric bands of Agate form in nearly every color the earth can produce, including a colorless form.

Historically, Agate has been discovered with the artifacts of Neolithic people, and was used as healing amulets and ornamentation dating back to Babylon. Its medicinal uses continued through the ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations, and spread throughout Africa and the Middle East into Russia. Agate sparked a world renowned stone cutting and polishing industry in Germany that flourished from the 15th to the 19th century, and exists today. [Simmons, 6][Mella, 67-68]

Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. [Simmons, 6]

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. [Eason, 111]

It opens communication between the plant and mineral kingdom, providing access to information beneficial in healing the planet. [Melody, 100] 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. [Eason, 111]

For frequent travelers, Turitella Agate protects against danger, alleviates fears, and keeps the connection to loved ones at home. [Eason, 111] Agate is especially effective against traffic accidents. [Megemont, 16]

An excellent fertility crystal, Turitella Agate increases the chances of success with IVF, artificial insemination and other fertility treatments. [Eason, 111]

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. [Gienger, 7] Agate also helps new mothers avoid the "baby blues" sometimes experienced after giving birth. [Megemont, 15]

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. [Eason, 305] Agate also promotes marital fidelity. [Meloldy, 82]
