Blue Lace Agate
Blue Lace Agate is a beautiful cryptocrystalline quartz semi precious gemstone that makes very unique lavender blue colored cabochons.
Agate is a form of chalcedony, usually banded and at least partly translucent. Agates are found as nodules or geodes in siliceous volcanic rocks. Blue Lace Agate is a seam agate, formed in layers usually not more than 1-2 inches thick, in a Dolomite matrix.
This agate was hidden for over 50 million years in the quiet isolation of the southwestern African desert and was first uncovered in the early 1960's by an American prospector, George Swanson, in the Kalahari desert of Namibia. This particular area is believed to be the only known deposit in the world of this material. It is pale blue, almost lavender, agate with white lace filaments that run through the cabochon stones.
Metaphysical Properties: Blue Lace Agate is said to give one confidence to stand up and speak. It also enhances loyalty and trust.
