Flower Agate polished heart with genuine 24 carat gold leaf
Charming, smooth polished Flower Agate heart with a unique plume pattern. Each individual stone varies, usually having a pale warm tone leaning towards dusty pink, this particular individual also with some green tones. The characteristic pattern shows translucent areas and sculptural depth in the way the bloom markings emerge from within the stone. In addition to general Agate crystal healing properties, this unusual type of Agate has its own set of skills, relating to self-growth and manifestation.
The heart is approx. 6.5 cm (2.6") wide and 6 cm (2.4") tall.
Weighs 190 g (6.7 oz).
The two photos show both sides of the stone. The third is a close-up of the golden mended area.
You'll receive this crystal treasure securely padded and wrapped to protect it on the postal journey.
Please note that these hearts occasionally include natural crevices which are not imperfections but part of the natural character of the stone. The area mended with gold is for damage that that occurred from careless handling at some point earlier in this crystal's journey.
'Crystal kintsugi' ~ sometimes a damaged crystal still has so much life and energy within that I just cannot discard it. Like us people, no need for past knocks and bruises to define our capabilities. Often the wounded healers have deep wisdom to share. This crystal spirit is now paired with genuine 24 carat gold to celebrate its beauty and to remind you of yours.
KINTSUGI (‘golden joinery’) also known as Kintsukuroi (‘golden repair’) is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. Kintsugi can be seen to have similarities to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect.
