Fire Agate

"Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even be checkered by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

 - Theodore Roosevelt



I have only ever seen fire agate in person once, at a local gem show. And when I did, I had to purchase two small pieces (seen in the photo above). Fire agate looks like a brown opal. However,  the bands of flashy rainbow patterns embedded within are unique to this gem. Opals carry a feminine energy and like female energy, they are soft. Fire agates are harder on the Mohs Scale and more masculine in energy like their element, fire.

Fire agate encourages boldness and courage tempered with patience and stability. Carrying or wearing one can assist in self-expression, sexuality, creativity and progress in goals.
