Blue Lace Agate (pictured above) by Maryann Sanfilipp Blue Lace Agate is a rare crystal that is found only in Nambia and is named for the white and blue lines that cut cross the blue stone making a lace-like pattern. It was discovered om 1962 by an American prospector named George Swanson and was mined by hand until 1977. The mine closed in 2016 making this a rather rare stone. The intensity of color depends on the depth from which it was mined---the deeper the mine the bluer the stone.
