About Botswana Agate
In a traditional healing ceremony in a tranquil African village, the shaman places a large, polished sunset stone upon the belly of a woman, believing it will help her have a baby. These sunset stone crystals are better known as Botswana Agate to Westerners, taking their name from their mining place in Africa. When large quartz crystals turn into stones of extreme beauty, they are cut and polished for jewelry pieces. Exceptionally large stones with interesting patterns end up as the centerpiece of a Botswana Agate pendant, a type of necklace that uses a chain capped by a large gemstone. Smaller stones also have their uses, mainly for polishing into Botswana Agate beads for necklaces. The many listings on eBay that reflect the versatility of this stone, and convenient shipping options allow jewelers and collectors to easily add these pieces into their collection. Botswana Agate crystals are ideal gems to add to any jewelry collection, and while they may not have healing properties they are certainly beautiful to behold.
