Where does blue lace agate come from?

Blue lace agate is mostly sourced from the southern regions of Namibia, a country in southwestern Africa. The deposits of blue lace agate in this area are known for their exceptional quality and the characteristic clearly defined blue and white banding patterns that give the stone its name.

The formation of blue lace agate crystal is closely tied to volcanic activity. It’s actually a type of banded chalcedony, so it’s often found in the same areas as those and other gemstones. The blue colouration in blue lace agate is caused by the presence of trace amounts of copper and manganese.

Blue lace agate is highly valued for its delicate and intricate banding patterns, which resemble delicate lacework. The stone typically exhibits light blue, pale blue, or blue-gray hues, with fine white or cream-colored bands running through it. These bands create a mesmerising and visually appealing appearance, making blue lace agate a very popular choice for jewellery.
