Blue Lace Agate is a form of banded Chalcedony that is unique to Ysterputs, a mine in Namibia, South Africa. It is unlike other Agates in its formation, but similar to Agates that form via Horizontal Banding. While its full formation process is still unknown, we do know it is a result of many layers of microcrystalline Quartz that build and dissolve and rebuild over time. It often includes tiny lavender Quartz crystals and is coated with pointed, dogtooth Calcite.
As a support crystal, Blue Lace Agate assists those who fear speaking in public or sharing thoughts and ideas with strangers. It is a great stone for those who communicate for a living, such as workshop directors, lecturers, teachers, or anyone who must connect in a clear, intelligent manner..
