About Botswana Agate:
Agate belongs to the Quartz family of minerals. Agate was first discovered sometime around the 3rd or 4th century B.C. by the Greek Philosopher Theophrastus, who named the stone after the river Achates, in which it was found. Although some colors occur more commonly than others, almost all agate will be multicolored due to unique banding. Botswana Agate has layered banded striations of black, white and browns, a perfect mala for him or her!
Botswana Agate: Helps balance emotional, physical and intellectual energy, and harmonize yin and yang, the positive and negative forces of the universe.
Black Onyx: Helps one to change bad habits and is a powerful healing and grounding stone. Black stone in the Feng Shui tradition is considered “Yin” and is folklore says it helps with emotional protection and increased power. It is associated with the root “chakra.”

I just received mine. That are nice but lack any of the marbling or beauty that is represented within the photos shown online. I have 8 malas from this site. This was the only malas that I was ever disappointed in.
