In Pink Banded Agate, the strong passion and power of Red is toned down to subtler, feminine aspects. This is the color ray of determination, commitment, and caring. Simply, pink is love. Also, pink is a soothing color, useful to calm feelings of anger or resentment. Rose is a comfort color that can aid efforts to meditate.
Pink is the color of new love, new romance, and new relationships. It is particularly powerful in Seeker crystals such as this one.
Pink Banded Agate crystals are the natural birthstones of those born in mid-autumn (October 22–November 20).
Pink Banded Agate is associated with the First Chakra, the Base Chakra which is located at the base of the spine and radiating through the legs and feet. This is the grounding Chakra and deals with the health of the physical body. When it is out of balance you will feel flighty and physically adrift. This cluster can be used effectively in crystal healing when the Base Chakra is in need of realignment.
With its fire energy, Pink Banded Agate is the color of richness and luxury in traditional Feng Shui. However, too much red leads to restlessness and over stimulation. Use scarlet and red with caution – they are best as an accent and accessory. Use these stones in rooms in which children play, and freely in rooms where energy levels are focused on activity. Dining rooms and kitchens benefit from these stones. They allow the free flow of energy that is important in these areas. Avoid using these stones in the East, or Southeast of your home. The best areas are the North, Northeast and Southwest, and South.
Pink Banded Agate is traditionally associated with those born under the sign of SCORPIO (23 Oct. - 21 Nov.).
Pink Banded Agate is a good meditation stone for women. It helps in efforts to understand and foster loving relationships and to bring a gentle energy to one's day.
Other practitioners report that Pink Banded Agate is a stone of love, but little is actually written about them. You will probably need to experiment with these in you life to understand their energies.
