More About Orange Botswana Agate
This member of the agate family is a banded (a.k.a. fortification) agate. A banded agate is composed of thin, multi-colored layers of chalcedony and crystalline quartz; the different band colors arise from trace amounts of elements such as iron and manganese. Agate is mined all over the world, but Brazil, Botswana, and South Africa, and the western United States have particularly abundant supplies of interesting agate varieties.
