Agates can be found all over the world. The one above, Mexican Fire Agate, is rare and only found in the South Western United States and Mexico. I am not sure who the first person to find this beautiful crystal was, but it is a fairly recent find. It was found in the 1940’s but not widely accepted into the crystal community until the 70’s. Like all agates, this one is layered. Genrally the colors you will see are browns, reds, oranges, yellows and whites, but just like flames, blues and greens can also be seen.
What makes Mexican Fire Agate so special is its iridescense. I can’t explain the science of it beyond Limonite creating the flash of color, but I did my best to capture it when I took the photograph. Really fine specimens look like you’re holding a piece of fire. On the Mohs Scale this type of agate ranges from 6.5 to 7, and works beautifully with the lower Chakras to help you feel safe, secure and confident enough to overcome the negative opinions of others.
One characteristic I appreciate about this crystal is the energetic kick it gives you to get moving. Its name is no accident! This stone motivates you to step out of your routine and break free of your comfort zone. It’s a great choice for creative people, Mexican Fire Agate can help get beyond creative blocks. Some of the other amazing characteristics of Mexican Fire Agate are:
- Like all agate, this one is grounding and protective.
- It creates a shield around you to repel negative attacks and sends it back to its source.
- Helps you connect to the divine.
- Helps you be strong, and courageous through periods of change.
- Helps you be focused and disciplined.
- Because it works with the lower Chakras, it boosts energy and vitality.
- It is said to improve the digestive process.
I hope you found this introduction to Mexican Fire Agate interesting. If it seems like something you would like to work with, I encourage you to acquire a piece and give it a try. Remember that crystals and minerals were given to the Earth to enhance our lives. I am in no way suggesting anyone leave allopathic medicine. Rather the purpose of these weekly articles is to offer alternative options to enhance your lives, our well being, and the healing process.
