Botswana Agate is a purplish-gray agate with white patterns and is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It helps to release emotions which have been repressed.
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 and was also used in African fertility ceremonies to encourage potency and the conception of strong, healthy offspring.
It stimulates the crown chakra and energizes the auric body, encouraging eternal love and allowing for the recognition that eternal love is a constant in the ever changing universe. It also encourages conscientiousness and vigilance in tasks and helps one to be focused and deliberate.
