History | Science

High quality stick agate reminds us of a beaver dam, where angled sticks are visible beneath the surface of the water, or as is actually the case, poking through the agate.
Stick agate is a pseudomorph after aragonite. A pseudomorph is a mineral that is in atypical form, due to having taken the form of the mineral it has replaced. In the case of stick agate, the agate fills a cavity of a rock that is already full of aragonite. The aragonite forms hollow tube structures within the agate, which resemble sticks.
Stick Agate, also called "Needle Agate" due to those needle-like structures, is mined exclusively in Turkey, making it a rare and still fairly uncommon stone within the US.

Metaphysical Properties

Agate is a stone that is formed based on how it fills crevices in rocks. Similarly, agate fills a metaphysical space with truth and positive energy, replacing anything false or negative that might have been there before.
Each variety of agate has additional properties of their own, and although due to its rarity, little is still known about the metaphysical properties of stick agate in particular, it is said to promote self acceptance, confidence, the speaking of one's own truth.



Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
