Blue Banded Agate Geode with Rare Lace Agate Formation and Calcite InclusionsSpectacular, this Blue Banded Agate geode is a rare find, gorgeously showcasing what nature is capable of making. This specific specimen comes from our Father's collection of world-class agates and from time to time he makes a specimen or two available.
The agate patterns are very delicate and showcase millions of years of mineral evolution. Starting with a blue neon agate lace, the agate lines evolved to deeper tones of blue, giving space to sky blue to take the scene in its center.
With no cracks and no treatment at all, the agate is just gorgeous and you may be wondering, how the blue lace layers formed, and this was an amazing process:
Agates normally form inside bubbles or cavities of igneous (volcanic) basalt and, over time, are filled with layers of water with high concentrations of silica. The water is slowly evaporated, forming a layer of silica gelatin and then a layer is formed. It is a very slow process and each layer contains different impurities, thus forming different colored bands. Fantastic, right?
Outstanding from every angle, this blue lace agate geode is sure to be an amazing addition to your crystal collection. Check out the photos to see more details and feel free to send us a message if you have any questions or specific requests. 🤍
