Botswana Agate is a gently cleansing stone that helps to shift one from dwelling on the problem to focusing on a solution. It is an excellent aid in cutting mental and energetic cords to “gurus,” perhaps well meaning but overbearing family members, and past life partners, so one can be free to live life in one’s own way. This stone stimulates creativity by helping to release repressed emotions and encouraging a focus on the big picture, while also connecting one to ever-present, Universal love. Botswana Agate is a useful aid when needing to stay focused and alert. It resonates with the crown chakra. This stone is also said to help people who want to stop smoking. Picture is representative. Individual stones naturally vary.
