Moss Agate: Growth, Fertility & New Beginnings

Moss Agate and Tree Agate are similar stones and neither of which are actually true Agates, but would be considered types of Chalcedony because they lack the signature banding pattern a stone needs to have to be considered an Agate. Moss Agate is translucent while Tree Agate is opaque, and they both feature mossy green inclusions of chlorite and hornblende. They’re also both found mostly in India and Brazil.

You might even consider charging your Moss and Tree Agates under the April Full Moon (April 5th), which is called the Pink Moon, and rises during fiery Aries season and is also called the Paschal Full Moon because it’s the first full moon after the Spring Equinox and takes place the week before Easter. April’s full moon is usually called the Pink Moon because of the new flowers usually in bloom at this time (specifically a species of pink creeping moss phlox native to many parts of North America). It is also said that if you literally bury moss agate stones in your garden or in flower pots alongside freshly planted seeds, they’ll actually help the plants grow. If you live in the northern hemisphere, you’ve probably grown up associating the month of April with light and slightly warmer weather after the cold dark of winter, rain showers, and most of all, new growth. Some of the best crystals to work with this time of year are Tree Agate and Moss Agate, which not only have mineral inclusions that look like plant growth (which is how they get their earthy names), but also have metaphysical properties associated with fertility, growth, and productivity.

Writes Robert Simmons in the Pocket Book of Stones, “Like the tortoise in the old fable, the motto of Moss Agate is “slow and steady wins the race.” Moss Agate is associated with grounding, stability, and persistence and patience with the growth process. It can aid with manifestation of goals and projects and is said to help one commune/connect with Nature.

Tree Agate, meanwhile, has the additional metaphysical properties of attracting abundance and prosperity and helping one commune with ancestors.

So no matter what you’re trying to grow, or even if you’re looking for help feeling motivated to start a new project, or even if you’re literally growing a garden, Moss and Tree Agate have the fertile, vibrant, yet patient energies to aid you in seeing everything through to harvest!
