PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Blue Lace Agate and Blue Chalcedony specimens sourced from Nsanje, Malawi. These exquisite formations undergo an intricate acid-bathing process in South Africa, meticulously removing the majority or all traces of matrix and leaving behind pure, stunning Blue Lace Agate and/or Blue Chalcedony. The acid preparation, performed locally, reveals the true essence of this material, often adorned with Pyrite on the etched surfaces. The intricate features of these specimens are truly captivating, showcasing the remarkable complexity of nature's artistry. A percentage of crystalline material even boasts the presence of Dog Tooth Calcite crystals, adding an extra layer of fascination. The removal of the matrix not only enhances the visual appeal but also makes these specimens exceptionally lightweight, halving the weight per kilogram compared to matrix-based counterparts. However, recent reports indicate potential changes in the mining landscape in Malawi, with Chinese interests acquiring equipment and deposits. This development may impact the availability and pricing of this extraordinary material. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
