A note about the metaphysical properties of agates. These are listed by the individual name, such as green moss agate, as are the various quartz crystals.
Diamond Crystals-(asst colors) Absorbing and amplifying energies, often used with other stones. Opens the 7th or crown chakra. Diamonds should always be thoroughly cleansed and others should not be allowed to handle them after, as they will absorb energy from whoever touches them, positive or negative. Therefore, it would also be wise to keep them stored in silk, to protect them from outside influences.

These metaphysical properties of crystals and stones have been in use for many years. Some properties come from ancient wisdom, folk magic, or folklore. Other properties come from intuitive sources that ask the stones themselves. Still other properties come from spirit guides and angels. Personally, I believe in the metaphysical power of stones and crystals and have had my own spirit guides tell me about them.
