|Named for the area in Africa where it is mined, Botswana Agate is called the Sunset Stone because it retains sunlight and comforts people through dark, lonely nights. The volcanic activity that produced these lovely stones dates back nearly 187 million years ago, and though the igneous stones of Botswana began as volcanic flow, they did not originate from normal, mountainous volcanoes. Rather the lava flowed in waves from long faults along the lower rock layers and rolled across the landscape, depositing layer upon layer of Silica/Quartz, creating the extra fine banding and patterns which make Botswana Agates highly unique and desirable.
|Historical and cultural references:
Botswana Agate is a useful receptacle for negative energy and toxicity, excellent for gridding around a house. It prevents out-of-body visitations from another soul and turns back unwelcome spirits.
Agate is useful as a protection amulet when traveling, and is especially effective against traffic accidents.
