BOTSWANA AGATE (BOTH HALVES)

​​​​​​​Cut and polished

Botswana, Southern Africa

Agate is a beautiful variety of quartz that slowly crystallised in concentric layers within gas bubbles inside basalt lava. This small agate has been cut in half and beautifully polished.

Agates from Botswana are mostly small and are purple, dark grey or black in colour, but they display exquisite and sharply contrasting white bands.  They are about 250 million years old.
