It has a translucent deep reddish-brown base, with flashes of orange, red, green and gold that appears as living flames within the gem. Its iridescent colors are caused by light interference on thin layers of iron oxide or limonite crystals within the Chalcedony.
Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. Fire Agate provides a steady, vibrant energy that stimulates a zest for living. It awakens the lower chakras and lights one's inner fires of Life Force, creativity, sexuality and will. It brings back to focus the Divine blueprint of one's life purpose and increases the pleasures in everyday life.
