New Botswana Agate Cabochons have arrived at The Gem Shop! These cabochons are cut to display wonderful patterns and nice contrasting colors. Botswana Agate originates from South Africa and was first imported into the United States by The Gem Shop in the early 1970's. The country of Botswana now has an embargo on rough material. It does not allow agate to be exported without being cut or polished. The new Botswana Agate Cabochons are perfectly priced and available for individual purchase.
