Botswana Agate Teardrop Necklace.

Botswana agate is a banded Chalcedony, a member of the Quartz family of minerals. It's mostly striped in various tones of pink and grey, although there are some layers with subdued apricot and browns. Botswana-Agate forms in cavities or gas bubbles in Rhyolite, a dense volcanic rock. 

Botswana-Agate is particularly unusual and sought-after by collectors due to its extra-fine and vivid bandings and patterns. In the Agate family, it is regarded as royalty!

Botswana-Agate is named after the country where it is mined in Southern Africa. Because of its propensity to retain sunlight and provide consolation to people during dark and lonely nights, it is also known as the Sunset Stone.
