LEGENDARY POWER

Agate symbolizes wealth, health, and longevity. In Mesopotamia, Agates were engraved as seal stones (symbols of power and authority). Pliny wrote that the Romans used the stone to make mortar and pestles with which to grind medicines.
Agate supports life in difficult circumstances, keeping the soul from harm. Legend said that eagles carried Agates to their nests to protect their young from snakebites, so early people wore Agate amulets to guard against the venomous bites of spiders or scorpions. In China, Agate was believed to be the solidified blood of the ancestors. In India and North Africa, red Agates were thought to contain the blood of demons and thus afforded protection against evil spirits. Agate is associated with Archangel Michael and the Shekinah, the divine feminine and merciful Queen of Heaven who rules karmic release, wholeness, and blessings.
Almost certainly in the biblical Breastplate of the High Priest, Agate would have been the eighth stone, connecting it to Scorpio
