A Crystal Message about the Healing Properties of Blue Lace Agate: “I surround myself with people that support my happiness and personal growth.”
UPDATE: This article previously used the term “totem animals” to describe animal archetypes that may hold meaning for someone. Using this term is culturally appropriative (as this is a term rooted in Indigenous spiritual practice) in the context it was previously used, especially shared by the author here (who is white). This article has been updated to reflect this change.

More About Blue Lace Agate:
Blue Lace Agate is a translucent to opaque, massive mineral. It is easily identified by its layers of pale, cornflower blue alternating with layers of white “lace.” Blue Lace Agate is a banded form of Chalcedony. Because this is a cryptocrystalline stone, it displays no outward crystal structure, but it belongs to the trigonal crystal system. Even though this stone is common in the market, it is only found in parts of Kenya and Namibia.
Blue Lace Agate is a stone of forgiveness, helping you accept what has happened and release it.
It encourages you to heal your emotions and find balance. Blue Lace Agate allows you to feel empathy and compassion for the person requiring your forgiveness and ensures that any energetic attachments are healed. It is a stone of positive communication, promoting assertiveness and personal power.

Blue Lace Agate Lore:
This stone was discovered only recently, in the 1950’s, by George Swanson. Although it has no historical lore, it has developed a reputation in modern-day as the “Stone of Ecology.” In 1972, Mr. Swanson was moved by the words of Dr. Harrison Schmitt, the only geologist to walk on the surface of the moon. Dr. Schmitt said, “If ever there was a fragile-appearing piece of blue in space, it’s the Earth right now.” Mr Swanson knew that these stones could be a symbol of this “fragile blue.” Blue Lace Agate was even, for a time, adopted as a symbol of earth ecology by the Tyler Ecology Award.
One Way to Work with Blue Lace Agate:
Close your eyes and hold the stone in your hands while focusing on the person requiring your forgiveness. Allow yourself to feel any emotions surrounding the situation, listen to your inner truth about what has happened, and then let go of any unresolved feelings or negativity. Visualize drawing energy from the Universe, through the stone, and into your heart chakra. Feel yourself accepting this new energy while holding compassion and empathy for all involved.
