Pink Botswana Agate
Stability - Emotional Healing - Grounding
Botswana Agate is a white-banded Agate named from Botswana, Africa, where it was initially discovered in the Bobonong district. It is often referred to as the “sunset stone” because it retains sunlight. These stones were produced by volcanic activity roughly 187 million years ago. They formed from the lava that flowed in waves from long faults along the lower rock layers and rolled across the landscape, depositing layers of Silica and Quartz, creating banding and patterns making Botswana Agates unique. It is even considered royalty among Agates by some collectors.
Ancient Africans used Botswana Agates in their fertility rites, believing the stone to strengthen their expressions of sexual energy. Botswana Agates with an “eye” are considered especially lucky, being cherished by civilizations in the Middle East and Africa for powers of protection against evil influence or negative energy. Presenting this stone to the gods was thought to protect harvests from drought, flooding, and insect invasions.
