This little Holly Blue gem is super rare. I have never seen a Holly Blue Druzy before this one. It is really a purple blue which makes it a very high quality stone along with being rare. It is wrapped with woven sterling wire and hangs from a sterling chain. The stone is a light to medium purple color whit a whitish color in the center where the sparkling crystal lie. Truly a beautiful stone and very rare indeed. It is wrapped just as it was found because I didn't want to take the chance of harming or cracking the stone doing things to it. Of course it is from Oregon.
The pendant including the bail is 2" x 1 1/8 x 1 1/2". The depth is because of the druzy. The chain is 17" long.
Science & Myth
Holly Blue Agate is a beautiful variety of crypto-crystalline quartz from the state of Oregon, in the US. It is named Holly Blue, for the town nearest the collecting area is called 'Holly' and the original material (first diggings) were deep blue in color similar to other blue chalcedony. This gemstone takes a fantastic polish making exquisite cabochons and carvings Holly Blue actually has three colors; blue, pink, and violet. The violet will open the mind up to new information and a greater sense of connection, the blue will add peace to this knowing and a stillness of the mind – knowing rather than thinking. The pink will allow this information to be viewed with love and with wisdom.
I find Holly Blue Agate to aid meditation; Holly allows me to easily slip into the meditative state. It brings a sense of security during meditation promoting a feeling that 'everything is OK'. I find that Holly Blue aids in under-standing that I am not alone, I am apart of the Universe. It has helped me grow in my spirituality while giving me a sense of balanced achievement. Holly also is good to work with to explore your dreams, making it much easier to remember your dreams.
Being that Holly Blue has a high content of Opal, I feel it to be an emotionally based stone as well as mental. I feel that Holly also allows one to become aware of their emotions and feelings. It allows one to mentally understand what they are feeling for the first time. In other words, it brings gentle understanding to why a person is feeling the way they do.
Another way to look at it would be that this stone is a blending of both a crystalline ray and an opalescent ray. The crystalline ray is very orderly and linear, the energy is more structured. The opal ray works around the orderly crystalline ray in a fluid manner, seeping into the areas that need healing without force. This energy knows where to go to promote healing in a gentle and loving manner. Holly Blue agate is a stone that is as beautiful as it is healing. A good use of Holley Blue would be to help you accept situations in your life that you cannot control.
Physically I have found this stone to lesson the pain of 'stress' headaches and to relax stiff muscles. Promotes restful sleep while relieving depression. Aids in relaxing a nervous stomach. To use Holly as an aid for an upset stomach, simply pass this stone over the solar plexus stomach area. Visualize the healing energy of this stone working to melt away or remove this pain.
