Agate Birthstone

Sapphire is the primary birthstone for September, with Lapis Lazuli and agate as the secondary birthstones. Agate is a wonderful translucent semi-precious gemstone to work with in my designs, as it glows when backlit by sunshine and is available in a wide range of colours.

The metaphysical qualities associated with this semi-precious gemstone are:

"Agate is a translucent micro-crystalline quartz and is related to balancing yin yang in the body, protection, strength, courage, calmness and healing. Agate also helps the eyes, uterus and stomach, pancreas and cleanses the lymph system."

Wishing all September babies a very happy birthday!
