Botswana Agate Beads & Botswana Agate Pendants
Botswana Agate is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is predominantly banded in shades of pink, purple and gray, though some layers may contain a muted brown or orange coloration. Botswana Agate is named for the area in Africa where it is mined. This stone was originally used in African fertility ceremonies and is said to harness the power to help a person conceive strong and healthy offspring. These beautiful banded stones were created through a volcanic activity that allowed them to form nearly 187 million years ago. This agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. It is a great crystal to use during pregnancy.
