Yellow Botswana Agate Beads
Botswana agate is one of the most prized agate varieties. Our Yellow Botswana Agate gemstone beads display gorgeous, delicate bands of golden yellow and cream, with a hint of orange of the stones. Some of the bands are transparent, allowing a fascinating view inside the structure of the stone.

More About Yellow 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.
