Botswana Agate meaning:
Named for its origin, Botswana Agate stimulates consciousness around the desire to breathe slowly and deeply. Its the oxygen crystal: a natural aerobic that you can wear! If you feel you tend towards passivity, wear this bracelet on your right wrist. If you tend towards hyper-drive, wear this bracelet on your left wrist. Not just great for smoking cessation .... as you can see, Botswana Agate makes for a stunning piece of jewelry.
So much of the Botswana Agate being sold these days is dyed. This bracelet is just naturally colorful - not dyed or stabilized or colored in any way (other than Nature herself).
This bracelet is composed of 20 rounded fingernail-shaped breads, each measuring 7/8 inch by 1/3 inch by 1/4 inch thick strung on four strands of sturdy elastic. The inner diameter measures 2-1/4 inches.
Botswana Agate properties:
Encourages wisdom by encouraging reflecting, checking within, slowing down, and learning from past behaviors.
Many of the bracelets we get from Botswana have imperfections in that they artisan still chose to polish a stone that was not perfectly shaped. The second photo shows you two beads that are "dented" on the top. They are not broken - they are smooth and polished. One of them is a particularly unusual and beautiful bead, the one with the crimson red spot, so it's nice to see that this one was not eliminated.
A must have to stop smoking.
