Snakeskin Agate got its name from its appearance. It is made up of semi-translucent agates that have colored bands of beige, creamy yellow, peach, orange, and white. There are crackled markings in snake skin agate that mimic the skin of a snake.
When consciously directed, Snakeskin Agate can be used to observe life from the unseen world. If you wish, you can become lost in a crowd, or unseen in social situations, fading into the background. This makes it useful to be able to see things from a perspective that may not be immediately apparent to others. Snakeskin Agate has also been purported to be helpful in finding lost "objects".
Agate, by itself, is a natural balancer for the body, mind, and spirit. It provides strength and support during challenging and stressful times. It has been used to eliminate unnecessary worry, promote self-esteem, and stimulate a higher level awareness of the world around you. It is a stone of inner peace, joy, and emotional balance. It could be referred to as the "happy" stone.
