More about this item
What a wonderful gift for someone who loves rocks and minerals. Botswana Agate large polished smooth nuggets with soft and warm colors of gentle swirls and bands of pinks, brown, apricot, and grays. This is a beautiful 28 inch beaded necklace made with Botswana Agate and striated black faceted round agate and copper beads. These heavy nugget beads are strung with sterling silver chain and then connected to a copper textured chain necklace. Each nugget banded bead is unique and is like a work of art made by mother nature. Each agate nugget is separated by faceted black striated agate beads and then accented with copper rondelles. A lovely textured copper chain with oval and circle shaped links suspend these gorgeous gemstones. The warm copper hues really complement the colors within these stones. Botswana Agate is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is predominantly banded in shades of pink and gray, though some layers may contain a muted brown or apricot. These stones were produced by volcanic activity nearly 187 million years. The banding in these stones were produced when lava flowed in waves from long faults along the lower rock layers and rolled across the landscape, depositing layer after layer of silica quartz thus creating the extra fine bands known to Botswana agates. * Botswana Agate Nugget Stone Beads. * 28 inch total length of necklace and is adjustable to shorter lengths. * Sizes vary from 22mm to 25mm. * Shades of pink, gray, brown, and apricot. * Striated black round faceted agate beads, 8mm. * Copper metal rondelle spacer beads. * Chain copper textured oval and circle link necklace.
