Blue Lace Agate Physical Properties
Agate is a variety of chalcedony, which is the general term applied to fibrous cryptocrystalline quartz varieties. It is vitreous and a mineral generally of secondary origin, forming in cavities and veins by deposition from meteoric groundwater containing gelatinous silica from the weathering of silicate minerals. It can also form by deposition from late hydrothermal solutions at or near the earth's surface under conditions of low temperature and low pressure. Agate is commonly associated with siliceous volcanic's, occurring as vein or vesicle filling. It occurs as a petrifying agent in fossil wood and bone. Agate is frequently found lining or filling rock cavities and fissures, sometimes forming geodes. When split open, they reveal an amazing variety of colours and patterns.
