Botswana Agate Necklace

$205

Botswana Agate is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is  banded in shades of pink and gray, though some layers may contain a muted brown or apricot. Named for the area in Africa where it is mined, Botswana Agate is called the Sunset Stone because it retains sunlight and comforts people through dark, lonely nights. The volcanic activity that produced these lovely stones dates back nearly 187 million years, though they did not originate from normal, mountainous volcanoes. Rather the lava flowed in waves from long faults along the lower rock layers and rolled across the landscape, depositing layers of silica, creating the banding and patterns which make this stone highly unique and desirable.

Metaphysical:

An eye formation in Botswana Agate is both protective and considered especially lucky. Wear one while picking lottery numbers to increase luck. Botswana Agate is an ideal crystal for sensitive people who are easily hurt by teasing or pressure, and can assist them in finding more like-minded friends. It also aids in finding partners who are spiritually in tune and share your dreams. Botswana Agate is excellent for those serious about giving up smoking. It is also a stone of protection for all who work with fire, and protects your home from fires.

This pendant measures approximately 49mm x 30mm and is plated in rose gold.
