ABOUT APRICOT AGATE
Agate is the name given to banded chalcedony, a member of the quartz family and found all over the world. Agate is found in literally every color of the rainbow imaginable, so it’s highly unlikely to find two identical pieces – they are all so unique! Metaphysically, agate is a softer vibration stone, and is highly regarded for its harmonizing and strengthening properties. Historically, it’s a stone of strength and stability – it’s grounding in a warm way, and incredibly protective. These pieces make wonderful pocket stones, or to carry in a purse, travel bag, or car! It’s great to ease anxiety, stress, and release resentments. Agate is also a wonderful stone for children, as it has a very soft and subtle energy, but is still stabilizing and strengthening. It helps give one courage and dispel fears.
Botswana Agate (also called Apricot Agate) is named for the African country from which it is mined. It’s also called the Sunset Stone because it is thought to harness sun energy, and thus keep us uplifting in hard times. This stone helps us find the love and strength within ourselves during a challenging situation, guiding us to find solutions to a problem, rather than dwelling on the hardships.
Apricot Agate helps us tune into others and form and solidify friendships. It’s particularly helpful for children or teens struggling with relationships, and adults who are seeking support from friends. This is a highly protective stone, a perfect gridding tool to create an energetic “seal” around your home for protection (some say it protects against house fires). It’s a wonderful stone for pregnancy, and has been used as a fertility stone across Africa, said to bring healthy children to women who work with it. It’s a protective amulet for those who travel, particularly good for keeping in the car. Botswana Agate helps us tune into our dreams and spiritual pursuits, and find others with like minded goals to share along our journey. This stone helps us feel understood.

All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered. 🙂
