Each windchime is completely unique, the colouring can vary but the size is fairly constant. As each slice is dyed blue, over the years if left in sunlight this colouring can gently fade, and will return to a more natural colour (we do also sell a natural colour windchime). However dying the agate does create beautiful blue banding on the slices.
These windchimes consists of a wooden hanging loop, from here a number of nylon threads pass through a second loop, and from these threads the agate slices are hung (the nylon threads are clear).
Size of Windchime (Approximately) Height of windchime from the top of the wood to the bottom of the lowest agate slice is roughly 50 cm. The size of each agate slice will vary but a typical size would be about 5-7 cm at the longest point.
More About Agate Crystals
The energy of agates is comforting and soothing, so it's a good tool to have around if you feel in need of relaxation, stress-relief or want to stop worrying. The energy reminds us that we need to take a step back sometimes to regain balance and release negativity and anxious thoughts from our lives.
Agates are lovely stones to have around where you sit, work or live. Their many colours and patterns make them attractive stones and they make wonderful ornaments if simply placed on a windowsill or desk. Agates can come in a whole variety of patterns and colours. Agates with exceptionally bright colours such as bright turquoise and vibrant pink have usually been dyed.
More About the Symbolism of the Colour Blue
Colours can affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states, both consciously and unconsciously. We can use colours to help us feel better, to inject an element of vitality into our life, or to calm strong feelings and promote a sense of peace and relaxation.
The colour blue is typically associated with a range of emotions and states of being including: calmness, purity, truth, wisdom, depression and peace. Different people perceive colours in different ways, so you may have other associations, which are equally valid.
In Buddhism blue is linked to wisdom, and in Hebrew traditions it's associated with mercy. Both Christ, and the Virgin Mary, have both been depicted wearing shades of blue, representing their detachment from worldly goods, materialism and possessions. Blue is the colour of the sky and as such is associated with a sense of peace, freedom and calmness.
The ancient Egyptians regarded blue as being the colour of truth, and the images painted on the walls of their tombs were on a sky-blue background. It's also a colour that's been linked to scores of gods, particularly sky gods, such as the Egyptian Amun, the Greek Zeus, Roman Jupiter, the Hindu Indra, Vishnu and his incarnation, Krishna (who was said to have blue skin).
When people are feeling low in spirits or depressed they're often said to be, "feeling blue." It's thought this phrase may stem from the twilight blues songs sung by African slaves whilst being held captive in North America. In the case of the chakras, blue represents the throat chakra.
