Beautiful and amazing cabochons of Botswana Agate packed with pattern, vibrant energy and translucency.
Colours range from soft greys to rich browns and ocre to soft pinks and the delicate white bands so chatacteristic of this crystal.
Found in the mines of Botswana, this is where this banded agate gets its name from. Botswana is a landlocked country in the centre of Southern Africa.
Botswana agate stone is a variation of banded Chalcedony, one of the Quartz family minerals.
It’s mainly striped in different shades of pink and grey, but you may find certain layers containing muted apricot and browns.
The volcanic activity responsible for these beautiful stones dates back to nearly 200 million years ago.
But, while Botswana’s igneous stones started off as volcanic flow, they didn’t originally come from your standard mountainous volcano.
In their case, the lava flowed out in waves from long faults found within the lower layers of rock and rolled from here across the landscape.
Layers of Silica and Quartz were thus created, making for the fine banding and patterns of Botswana agate colours that make them so unique.
