Agate Beads Meaning

Agate stones are believed to possess healing properties and promote healing. This gemstone is often used by those looking to balance their mind and center themselves. It is also thought to transform negative energy into positive energy.

Types of Agate Beads

Agate beads can be found in solid colors, but most have some variety of striation or pattern. A layered pattern of stripes is common and is found in varieties of agate such as tiger’s eye, a brown and gold variety, or fire agate beads, a stone with different shades of red and orange.

Dendric Agate 

Dendritic agate has inclusions that resemble ferns, tree branches, or bubbles. Some varieties are moss agate stones, blue agate beads, bloodstone, honeycomb, and plume agate. Some forms of agate can be sliced to produce a thin sheet. When a light is placed behind the sheet, it will shine through and bring the patterns in the stone into greater focus.

The agate stone beads can also be found in a variety of shapes such as square, rectangle, round, pear, and nugget shapes, among others.


Agate forms in layers and sometimes a hollow space is left inside the stone. This space is often lined with quartz crystals called drusy. These roundish balls are called geodes and are very popular for their beautiful colors and crystal patterns. Many geodes are small and can be used in jewelry. Often they are sliced to display the drusy inside the stone. Some of them are large enough to walk into, such as the Crystal Cave on the shores of Lake Erie in northern Ohio. Some agate beads contain bits of drusy.


Cameo jewelry is often made from agate and other forms of chalcedony. The technique requires a stone with different colors, and some of one color is carved away leaving a design on a different colored background. Cameo pieces were popular in ancient Rome and Victorian and Edwardian England.
