Blue Lace Agate Tumbled Stones
Blue lace agate tumbled stones from Southern Namibia. These fine grade crystals boast distinctive colour and markings. Their exceptional polish and vitreous lustre contributes to them being incredibly tactile.
Blue lace agate and blue agate have a very similar appearance but the two stones are not the same. Although both are types of chalcedony, only stones with prominent wavy bands are correctly known as blue lace agate. Although small amounts can be found in a few African countries, the vast majority have always come from from an area of arid desert in southern Namibia close to the border with South Africa. The deposit known as Ysterputz on farm 254 is now closed so no new material has been extracted for several years. For this reason blue lace agate from Namibia is now extremely rare. Most material now comes from Zambia and Malawi.
When used for its metaphysical properties the soothing colour of blue lace agate induces relaxation and feelings of calmness. This in turn brings about a sense of inner peace and tranquillity. Stones are used for activating and healing the throat chakra so are helpful for alleviating symptoms of a cold or headache. A single blue lace agate stone may be used as a worry bead to help ease depression or the feeling of having the whole world resting on your shoulders.
We only have a very small number of these blue lace agate tumbled stones from Namibia left available.
Empathic warriors are stones which have at some point in time sustained some kind of damage, usually a chip or fracture. With rocks and minerals having evolved over millions of years we do not believe in throwing them away. These pieces are available to buy at a significantly reduced price. Empathic warriors are not always available. More information can be found in our article on empathic warrior crystals.
