Black Agates are mainly found in Africa and Brazil. Like many black crystals, Black Agate meaning lies in its healing properties of grounding and protection. This stone can also be helpful in keeping stressful households somewhat peaceful despite the turmoil.
The meaning of Black Agate can be summarized in these top benefits:
- If you are emotional, depressed, angry, and feeling abandoned, Black Agate will help you see the truth in your situation while bringing stability and balance to overcome life’s challenges.
- Black Agate facilitates the release of bad memories in order for you to move forward towards bigger and better things. In this way, Black Agate is use to harness negative energy, find the good in a bad situation, and channel that positive energy to build emotional and physical strength.
- Working with Black Agate can heal your Root Chakra. This is often overlooked but is possibly the most important chakra to heal. Nearly every adult holds on to some portion of negative programming that they picked up from their parents, teachers, and peers during childhood. Feelings of scarcity, selfishness, guilt, shame, and insecurity are the result of a blocked Root Chakra. When you release the blockage, you will naturally develop more personal integrity, self-belief, and a better sense of belonging. Without healing the Root Chakra, there will always be a void or emptiness no matter how much you have achieved materialistically.

Black Agate Healing Properties by Intentions:
Fear, Insecurity, Worry / Removing Negativity - If you are looking inward, Black Agate can release some long-term issues you may have since childhood. Those issues might involve intensely negative emotions like grief, anxiety, fear, and anger. Those issues might even involve guilt, shame, and resentment of yourself and close family members. Once you have a clear understanding of where your negative emotions and thoughts stem from, you have the choice to replace it with a different set of beliefs about your reality. When you have removed negativity, your mind opens up to possibilities, opportunities, and creativity. Removing negative beliefs is the 1st step in working with the Law of Attraction. The abundance mentality flows out only after you have achieved a deep inner sense of personal worth and security.

Black Agate is popularly worn as a talisman to ward off energy vampires. This crystal can also block the negativity from attaching onto you through the “Debbie Downers” in your workplace or home that you cannot avoid being in contact with.
