Blue Lace Agate



Name:

Agate is a chalcedony (pronounced kal-sed-on-ee) distinguished by characteristic colours and banding. The bands can be multicoloured or of the same colour.

Blue lace agate is one of the rarest and most popular of the agates.

Description:

Agate occurs in an infinite amount of colours and patterns, and no two Agates are alike. The extraordinary beauty and uniqueness of Agate is responsible for its great popularity.

Agate must be polished to bring out its full charm; unpolished specimens are dull and ugly. It usually forms in rounded nodules or knobs which must be sliced open to bring out the internal pattern hidden in the stone.

Gemmological Characteristics:

Chemically agate is the same as tiger’s eye, which is petrified wood and jasper, and physically the same as quartz. Petrified wood is actually agate that has replaced some of the organic matter in the tree, slowly and over a long period of time. The structure of the tree will remain but the tree inside is a fossil.

Zodiac & Birthstone:

Zodiac: Virgo, Birthstone: June
Holistic Properties:

Agates generally bring out your more personable side, and allow you to let problems and irritations slide off your back rather than dwelling on them. It also helps to connect with your highest power and to emit positive feelings of hope, joy and positive thinking. You can also use them as wishing stones.





It can be very calming and uplifting, blue lace agate is great to use in any situation where tensions may reside. Keep one in your home or at your office to help keep everyone at peace.
