Botswana agate is a form of quartz which has pink and grey bands. These colourful and fine patterns and bandings on the surface of the stone make it very unique, so it’s sought after by many collectors. It’s also seen as a good luck charm. It’s also sometimes called a Sunset Stone. This is because it can retain sunlight, bringing comfort to the owner in lonely, dark nights.
History Of The Botswana Agate Good Luck Charm
The Ekeko deity dates back to a time before the Spanish conquest of the Americas. Originating from the Tiwanaku settlers who lived on the high plateaus of the Andes, the image of Ekeko has changed over the years. Originally, it was depicted as a naked indigenous man. After years of the catholic church trying to stamp the cult out, Ekeko is now seen as a mixed race, clothed male figure. He is most associated with the Feria de Alasita where he plays the role of host, welcoming people to the festival and is decorated with miniature versions of the attendees’ dreams in the hope of them coming true.
