Grape Agate is a Seeker Transformer Crystal. Seeker Transformers are talismans used when the desire is to find a way to transform a part of one's life to a more desirable state.
Seekers are used when we need some help to find a new path, a new approach, or in any quest to gain that which we desire but do not yet possess.
When they possess the Earth Power of the Transformer, they have the power to aid us to find new relationships that will transform some part of our life.
Choose these by the vibrancy and interest of their designs. Your mind needs to connect with their color and design for best results.
Like the sleepy, misty time of year that produces its rays, violet (purple) is the color ray of intuition, dreams, nobility, and luxury.
As the color ray of influence that begins the cycle of life once again, violet is one of the most powerful rays in nature. It inspires awe and invites a feeling of mystery and magic, reminiscent of the mystery and magic of life’s rejuvenation and renewal.
Violet color rays are powerful aids in interpreting our dreams, inspiring us to great deeds and accomplishments, and putting the magic back in our lives and relationships.
Violet is the color of music; it stirs us, transforms us, and connects us in seemingly mysterious ways to our dreams, our past, and ourselves.
With its beautiful violet color, Grape Agate is a natural birthstone of those born at the time when the year is new, just after the winter solstice (December 21–January 19).

When the crown chakra is out of balance or its energy is blocked, you will feel clumsy, uncoordinated, and at sorts with life. You will stumble in both movements and thought. You will be uninspired and out of step. The world will seem to be spinning, and you will be unsure of who you are or why you even exist. You will be rigid in your thinking, and be spiritually adrift. Your consciousness will be limited, and possibilities will not appear to you. You will have difficulty understanding relationships, ideas, and dreams. Use a Purple Agate to restore the balance in your spirit energy of the crown chakra.
