Some of the world's best agate has come from the Agua Nueva Ranch. Predominant colors in this Agua Nueva agate are earthy golds, browns and reds and includes some lavender and white. The Agua Nueva Ranch mine is located about one hour north of Chihuahua City, Mexico.
Metaphysically, agate is a good protective stone and can also strengthen the body's connection to the earth.
