About Stone: Fire Agate (sometimes called Flame Agate) is a variety of Agate containing Limonite and/or Iron, giving it a luminescent, fiery “flash”, from which its name is derived.

It can give you courage and strengthen your will power, enabling you to complete those half-finished projects with gusto.  Use Fire Agate to protect you against those who would cause you ill-will, sending those harmful feelings back to the source.
