Montana State Gem Comfort Stones
Montana Agate: one of Montana’s State Gems derives its name from the Yellowstone River and its tributaries where it’s found among the gravel deposits of the Pleistocene Age. In fact, some Montana agates like “limb casts” come from wood that became covered by the ash, and fossilized after the volcanic activity of that time. In general, these Montana agates are produced from silica and the striking inclusions composed of manganese, iron, and other significant minerals show beautifully when polished. Agate is the mystical birthstone for the month of September, the birth stone for the zodiac sign of Gemini, and acceptable for 12th and 14th Wedding Anniversary’s.
Montana Moss Agate is found in the Yellowstone River Basin of southeastern Montana.
Montana Agate is said to help balance emotions, discern the truth, accept circumstances and is useful as a powerful emotional healer. Agate is the oldest stone in recorded history and has been used in jewelry since Biblical Babylonian times. Agates were used to ward off storms and were prized gems in antiquity. Traditionally, Agates with banded colors were once placed at the head of a sleeper to give rich and varied dreams and is considered a protection stone. It is believed to attract strength and offer protection from bad dreams, stress and the draining of energy. Our Montana Comfort Stones are wonderful for their smooth cool touch.
