Laguna lace Agate is a type of Chalcedony, it is a cryptocrystalline form of silica.
Crazy Lace is a variety of agate that features "crazy" twists and turns in the banding.
Laguna agate is a fortification agate with beautiful varietal colors. Fortification agate features patterns like a medieval fortress wall.
Our Laguna Lace agate presents both varieties of banding often in the same stone.
No gemstone is more creatively striped by Nature than agate, chalcedony quartz that forms in concentric layers in a wide variety of colours and textures. Each individual agate forms by filling a cavity in host rock. As a result, agate is often found as a round nodule, with concentric bands like the rings of a tree trunk. The bands sometimes look like eyes, fanciful scallops, or even a landscape with trees.
admin adjustment seller cleartly stated rough and image taken in water and are not polished The photo showed these as being sparkly. They arrived rusty and ugly, in no way polished. Very disappointed.
QUALITY ROUGH Reply:
photo is taken with stones wet as per description they are rough pieces that need polishing , pls read description correctly
Gorgeous colour with great translucency. Lovely pieces, couple of flaws, but will keep one as specimen & freeform polish the others to set. And Thanks for the little Pyrite gift- though it looks more like Chalcopyrite??.
