Spots of red may occur in some specimens, and occasionally the crystal is dark green with bluish inclusions.

Planted in a pot or flower bed, it increases the overall health of plants. Moss Agate brings peace and stability to the emotional body. It is especially helpful to those who experience extreme mood swings and those addicted to emotional drama in their lives. It soothes volatile tempers and promotes patience, wholeness, and inner calm.
Quick Healing Overview: Moss Agate releases deep-seated fear and stress, expanding one’s personal space and growth. It stimulates a good self-image and strengthens positive personality traits, including the ability to get along with others. An optimistic stone, Moss Agate is helpful for those suffering from difficult life circumstances, depression, or brain imbalances to find hope and trust, and to keep trying.
Birthstone & Zodiac Uses: Moss Agate is not a traditional birthstone. Moss Agate, with its green color energy, is one of the natural birthstones of those fortunate enough to be born in the heart of spring (April 20-May 20). Agate is one of the zodiac stones for those born under the sign Gemini, between May 21 and June 20, when the Earth is approaching summer.
Meditation Uses: Moss Agate provides a wide variety of crystal formations conducive to meditative focus. The intricate movements within the crystal encourage a calm, relaxing state and open the mind to higher thoughts and inner truths.
For Chakra Balancing: Moss Agate is associated with the Heart Chakra, located near the center of the breastbone. It regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment. When the heart chakra is out of balance you may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become critical of the little foibles of others.
Crystal Color Energy: Moss Agate utilizes the energy of green. It is a “growth crystal” – a powerful conduit of the earth’s Life Force of birth, development, and creation, and of the power of nature’s constant renewal. It is a potent aid in nurturing, whether fledgling family relationships or a new business venture. Green crystals are perfect for keeping a venture on course, a project on schedule, and life on track. Lighter Green crystals promote spiritual growth and a renewed commitment to a higher purpose. Those of a darker hue are talismans of physical growth and strength, and safety in travel.
Associated Goddesses: Moss Agate honors Bona Dea, the Roman Earth Goddess of Fertility and the Greek Goddess of Women. She protects women through all of their changes and is a skilled healer, particularly with herbs.
Uses in Divination: The Divinatory meaning of Moss Agate: A very lucky omen for the gradual growth of what you currently need most in your life, whether money, promotion, health, or love.
What Other Crystal Authors Think: Agate stops the burning desires for things we do not need and assists those juggling commitments or multiple jobs. It helps writers express ideas in marketable form and helps young children learn to walk and not fall as they age.
