I thought the name interesting – “Fire Agate’. I fell in love with this snake-skin pattern agate from the moment I saw them. But then I learned these are in fact “crackled” by a process of throwing cold water onto the heated surface. I still love them. But real fire agate actually is opal-like flashes in agate and these crackled ones do not flash.
People still buy them as I suspect the patterning is half of the healing effect. It is very connected to the reptilian aspects of ourselves e.g. the reptilian brain, to help it also upgrade with us. The thumb stone shaping is fantastic as it is so versatile. Place it in a pocket, hemp necklace or just enjoy rubbing it.
