Add some drama to your jewellery collective with the 'Sunset Stone', so-called for its ability to retain sunlight. The tear shaped gemstones are faceted to create multiple edges in the jewellers' Dublin design studio. Agate gemstones are alternated by sterling silver beads for a design that's wearable both day and night. The 7.5-inch bracelet has an interlocking closure. About the Gemstone
Botswana Agate // Origin: Botswana, Africa
Named for the area in Africa where it is mined, Botswana Agate is called the Sunset Stone because it retains sunlight. The volcanic activity that produced these lovely stones dates back nearly 187 million years ago; lava flowed in waves depositing layer upon layer of silica / quartz, creating the extra fine banding and patterns which make Botswana Agates highly unique and desirable. Some collectors consider them royalty among Agates.
Due to the nature of the gemstones, patterns can vary from the main image. All stones are natural and remain in their original shape where possible. You’ll be happy to know this is a real one-of-a-kind piece as no two stones are the same.
