 Agate, Blue Lace Gemstone Properties 

Design Possibilities

When you think of blue lace agate, think of a house--the palest blue house you can imagine. Put white lace curtains at all the windows. Make it the kind of house you want to walk right into. Inside, it's cool and clean and quiet. Someone will be there to wait on you hand and foot just because they love you. They'll leave you alone when you want to be left alone or talk when you feel like talking. It's a place you can visit whenever you want to. Just put a strand of blue lace agate beads or a blue lace agate pendant around your neck, and you'll be there. Don't let this delicate stone fool you. Agate is a tough stone with a strong resistance to chemicals. Because of blue lace agate's gentle beauty, though, I think it calls for an old-fashioned setting. Sterling silver. With pearls, perhaps. And something iced to drink in a tall crystal glass when you wear it.

Metaphysical/Healing Properties

I have a friend named Alice who took up walking after the death of her husband. Regardless of the weather, whenever she felt like crying, she put on her walking shoes and walked until she felt better. She isn't certain which helped her most-the walking or the blue agate pendant she wore while she was doing it. But she's kept both in her life and now they both give her nothing but pleasure. Blue lace agate enhances grace and lightheartedness. It's a soothing stone known for calming the mind, releasing stress and removing anxiety. I read recently that it is especially effective after long, severe struggles. I know that is true because of Alice.
