About Botswana Agate: Botswana Agate is considered "Agate Royalty" because of its unique patterns and distinct and circular banding, as well as the intense contrasts between the bands. This beautiful stone is found in a variety of natural colors – all showing fine and parallel lines in swirling patterns that only nature can create. When very dark, white, and clear agate bands form closely together, theycreate a shadow effect known as "parallax." Some stones are in delicate shades of grey, mauve, peach, taupe and pearly creams. Others are tan, grey black, brown, mahogany, pink and white. Red Botswana shows bands of red, orange, brown and white. Yellow Botswana displays delicate bands of golden to pale yellow and cream, with a hint of orange. Yellow, green and lilac Botswana Agate are extremely rare. Some of the bands are transparent, allowing a fascinating view inside the structure of the stone. Botswana Agate is found in the Mashatu area, as well as along the Limpopo River riverbed, which runs near the border of Botswana and South Africa. Miriam’s Collection of stones includes several color varieties.
