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!
