Agate is a relatively common stone that may be found around the world. Botswana Agate is a member of the banded chalcedony family of agate stones.

It boasts a stunning banded pattern and is available in many colours, including grey, pink, apricot and brown, among other shades. Botswana Agate is named for the African country where it is mined.
Agates are believed to have been formed millions of years ago during volcanic eruptions. The volcanic lava flows left cavities filled with gas. As the flows cooled, these cavities allowed for mineral bearing solutions to enter and the combinations of these solutions along with heat, pressure and millions of years allowed the agate to form. Agate will resemble a potato on the outside, the stone must then be cut or sliced to see the beautiful colors inside.
