Description

These lovely gems are Botswana agate. Botswana agate is prized for its purplish gray overtones, pink cores and profusion of concentric bands. It's getting harder to come by these days and the prices are unfortunately going up. The fine translucent bands running through the transparent host chalcedony give the look of the delicate gills beneath a mushroom's cap.

It is my privilege to be offering this matched set of THREE gorgeous Botswana agate cabochons for sale. All three of these stones were cut from the same piece of rough. It was quite thick, so I sliced it in half length wise, and realized I had an opportunity for a pendant and earring stones. These stones have a lovely translucence with subtle color banding of grays, pinks, and subtle grayish purples. There are two small natural indentions on the gems, left from the surface of the material. One on the edge of an earring stone, and the other on the pendant stone. I chose to leave them for sake of the composition of color banding in the finished stones. They have no impact on the structural integrity of the stones, and a simple bezel setting will hide them easily. These stones are natural and untreated in any way. They are each beveled and polished on the back as well. The pendant stone weighs 20.83ct (4.16g) and measures 28 x 24 x 5.8mm. The earring stones weigh 13.91ct (2.78g) together, and measure approximately 26 x 12 x 4.3mm.

All my stones are hand-cut by me, and the stone you are buying is always the stone pictured. Please see my shop policies for more information, or feel free to contact me with your questions and feedback.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

    Wore it to a formal party and got so many compliments. This pin is so subtle but once it catches your eye you can't stop looking at it. Phil is a brilliant designer and an amazing person to work with. Can't wait to ping him for future projects.

    This ring is not only beautiful, it is exactly what I wanted. Going through the design process with Phil was easy and he was more than willing to work through any ideas or changes I had.

    Thank you so much! I love it!
