AG204 Botswana Agate

AG204 Botswana Agate


Here is an exceptional Botswana Agate from Botswana, Africa. The Botswana Agate is a type of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family with striped banding. It measures 3 3/8″ x 2 1/4″ x 1 1/8″ and was cut and polished right here in our Lapidary Department. A true little treasure!

Agates mostly occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or waters containing Silica in solution which is possibly derived from the decomposition of Silicates in the lava.  The Siliceous matter is deposited in regular layers resulting in the banded or striped formation.  It is very unlikely that you would ever find an exact duplicate of any type of Agate, Fairburn or other.
