HISTORY The volcanic activity that produces this beautiful stone dates back nearly 187 million years ago. They began forming in the volcanic flow, but did not originate from normal mountainous volcanos. The lava actually flowed in waves along lower rocks and rolled across the landscape depositing layer upon layer of quartz, creating the extra fine banding and patterns which make Botswana Agate highly unique and desirable.
CRYSTAL MEANING Botswana Agate wraps its intricate layers around the soul like a hug. It is a comforting and protective soul with the sensitive spirits in this world who often feel lonely, easily hurt, scared or are grieving a loss. Botswana Agate helps us find the power to overcome difficulties in life and the strength to look for solutions rather than dwelling on these difficulties.
Botswana Agate is a beautiful stone that brings a stabilising and strengthening energy into our lives.
