The ancient Egyptians believed agate meaning to refer to as many things as protection against natural disasters like lightning, protection from thirst and as having the ability to deliver powers of speech. Persians also believed that agate stone could be used to defend against storms. The power of agate gemstone to the ancient Chinese was more internal. They believed that agate crystal meaning was one of spiritual protection and could stimulate one’s life force while cleansing their mind to make space for good luck and fortune.
