Botswana Agate is a comfort stone, beneficial in overcoming depression, and strengthening during a grieving process. It helps alleviate obsessive thoughts and destructive mental patterns, and assists in overcoming fears, such as agoraphobia and panic attacks in crowded places. It encourages one to view the bigger picture in life, and look toward practical solutions rather than dwelling on the reasons for a situation or assigning blame.A crystal of possibility and hope, Botswana Agate encourages artistic expression and exploration of the unknown, while still maintaining logic and attention to detail that brings projects and ventures into reality. It also releases emotional repression and blocks to fertility, by lending the knowledge that sexuality is a natural function and sensuality is the body's appreciation of the fullness of life. Agate raises awareness and links into the collective consciousness of the oneness of life. It encourages contemplation of one’s life experiences that lead to spiritual growth and inner stability.
