Botswana Agate is a variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is known for having bands in the shades of pink, grey, brown, and apricot.
Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, and for this reason it is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening stone.
It does wonders for balancing emotions, physical and intellectual energy and harmonizing the yin and yang of the body.
It is named after the area in which it is mined, in Africa. It is called the Sunset Stone because it retains sunlight and comforts you through dark and lonely nights... or long winters! Its traditional African use was based around encouraging potency of conception, for strong and healthy offspring in fertility ceremonies.
This precious stone was produced by volcanic activity nearly 187 million years ago. The stones began as volcanic flow, as lava flowed in waves, depositing layer upon layer of quartz/silica, creating the extra fine band patterns that make Botswana Agates extremely unique. Some people refer to Botswana Agate's as royalty among the Agate family of stones.
