More about Botswana Agate

Botswana agate is one of the most prized agate varieties. Our Botswana agate beads display gorgeous, delicate bands of gray-brown, gray, and white, with a hint of pink or mauve in some of the stones. Some of the bands are transparent, allowing a fascinating view inside the structure of the stone. We love 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.
