Egg-Shaped Botswana Agate "Crystal Window" Wire-Wrapped Stone Pendant Necklace
An egg-shaped piece of Botswana Agate, with exquisite details in shades of pink and apricot, is wrapped delicately in 99.9% pure copper wire, bare and without any treatment or coatings.
**Because it's natural copper, you should definitely expect the wire to naturally oxidize and darken over time and for it to perhaps be darker when you receive the pendant, compared to the photographs in this listing.
Along with the distinct banding common to agates, the front of the rock features a small natural "window" looking into some of the stone's inner layers of tiny crystal formations.
It's such a fascinating stone, you'll find yourself getting lost in it. I included more photos than usual to give you the best possible look at the pendant.
This unique stone measures approximately 3/4 inch long/tall and 1/2 inch wide. The pendant's total height is approximately 2 1/8 inches tall.
Includes a silky-satin black cord in your choice of two lengths: 18 or 24 inches, each with a 2-inch extension chain. The metal clasp and chain portions of the cord are lead- and nickel-free.
Like portions of this stone, Botswana agate often displays highly defined parallel banding, usually in white, on hues of brown, gray, pink, tan, apricot and purplish red.
Botswana agate belongs to the quartz family of the banded Chalcedony variety and is named after the country in Southern Africa where it is mined.
Botswana agate was formed nearly 187 million years ago by lava flowing in waves from long faults in the earth. This lava rolled across the landscape, depositing layer upon layer of quartz silicate to create the banding and patterns now prized in Botswana agate stones.
Botswana agate is believed to help us to accept and to receive. To accept the past, present, and future. To remind us that all things happen for a reason and it is better to let go of resentment towards people who may have hurt you in the past. Many believe this stone can help you find inner peace and serenity, no matter what the situation.
