Agate is a versatile and popular stone in modern jewelry-making--just as it was 3,000 years ago, when the ancient Egyptians were using it as sealstones, cooking vessels and talismans for protection!
These days, it's used in industry and manufacturing because of its toughness and resistance to chemicals. Some common uses are in burnishing tools, precision pendulums, mortar-and-pestle sets and more. But its widest use has always been for jewelry.
Agate is a very common gemstone in the state of Oregon, often found inside the famous Oregonian "thundereggs" found in the eastern parts of the state. The thunderegg is the Oregon state rock, too (different from the state gem)! Other agates are the state stones or gems of Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and Tennessee.
White agate is a stone of balance and release. It is credited with harmonizing an individual's feminine and masculine sides, helping the body release toxins and building the immune system. It is also believed to improve concentration and analytical frames of mind, as well as releasing traumas and providing the courage to trust.
For proponents of energy work and crystal healing, white agate is believed to be beneficial for mental issues, including everyday challenges such as frustration and anxiety. It is believed to stimulate the crown chakra and is often used to make worry stones. This white stone is often attributed with the power to attract angelic helpers and spirit guides.
