ORCA AGATE PALM STONE
Orca agate is a type of agate that is named for its black and white banding, which is reminiscent of the coloring of an orca (also known as a killer whale). Agate is a type of microcrystalline quartz that is known for its intricate patterns and layers of color. It is often used in jewelry and decorative objects, as well as in various other applications such as paperweights and ornamental items.
Orca agate is found in a variety of locations around the world, including the United States, Brazil, and Madagascar. It is known for its black and white banding, which is created by the presence of iron and other minerals in the stone. The banding can be either straight or curved, and the white layers may have a variety of shades, including cream, gray, and pale blue.
Orca agate is considered a semi-precious stone, and it is often polished and cut into cabochons or beads for use in jewelry. It is also sometimes tumbled to create a smooth, polished finish. Orca agate is believed to have healing properties and is often used in crystal healing practices. It is said to help with stress and anxiety, and to promote balance and harmony.
