Metaphysical & Healing Properties
Botswana Agate dispels fears, soothes the nervous system, builds confidence and helps to lift one out of depression.
This is a stone for addictions and helps the user to unentangle themselves from the hold that an addiction has on them, it is regularly used for helping people to quit smoking.
It activates the Root Chakra, helping you to make connection with your own grounding and forming protection in the process. If there is an eye formation in the stone, this is felt to be particularly effective as a protective amulet.
This warming stone promotes stability and is a good stone to have around if you're pregnant.
Though Agates can be found anywhere in the world (though Botswana Agate comes from Botswana) their history is tied in with a small town in Germany called Idar-Oberstein as this is where Agates were traditionally cut and polished; Idar-Oberstein had something of a monopoly on the skills and craftsmanship needed for bringing the best out of Agate stones. It remains, to this day, an essential centre of activity and production in the world of crystals and gem cutting.
