Blue Lace Agate Meanings and Introduction

Blue Lace Agate has a soft, soothing elegance, like sky-blue waters released from winter's grasp. Its graceful, circular design has a stimulating, positive effect on emotions and attitudes. It is not a stone of protection but rather of encouragement and support. Its circular flowing energy calms, uplifts, and elevates.

Blue Lace Agate is a stone of communication, helping those who have difficulty being heard by others or who need confidence and articulation to share their truths. It provides clarity of thought and unwavering intent in regard to what matters most. Blue Lace Agate is a Stone of the Diplomat, assisting communication in situations were angry words must be avoided, but clear understanding is necessary.

Blue Lace Agate is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is usually banded in layers of predominantly light blue, striped with brighter blues, whites, and even brown threads of color. Agate is sometimes called the earth rainbow because, in its various forms, the concentric bands in nature form nearly every color the earth can produce, including a colorless form.

Historically, Agate has been discovered with the artifacts of Neolithic people and was used as healing amulets and ornamentation dating back to Babylon. Its medicinal uses continued through the ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations and spread throughout Africa and the Middle East into Russia. Agate sparked a world renowned stonecutting and polishing industry in Germany that flourished from the 15th to the 19th century and exists today.

Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. The layered bands of microscopic quartz in Agate may appear delicate, they are actually very strong. Agate is excellent for balancing emotional, physical, and intellectual energy and in harmonizing yin and yang, the positive and negative forces of the universe.

Blue Lace Agate is particularly stimulating to the Throat and Third Eye Chakras.

Blue Lace Agate, with its blue crystal energy, will open and clear the Throat Chakra. The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. In balance, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, we can bring our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release.

Blue Lace Agate can also be used on the Third Eye to soothe an overactive mind and to still one's thoughts. The Third Eye, or Brow Chakra, is the center of perception and command. It directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world. Our consciousness is located here.

Blue Lace Agate Birthstone

There are several ways to find an appropriate birthstone. The traditional one is listed first. These are from the popular lists that most people are familiar with. The second way is to find your natural birthstone by the color wheel of life. Finally, many people use the traditional stones of the Zodiac.

In this section, you will find information on all three approaches.

Traditional Birthstone


Blue Lace Agate is not a traditional birthstone.

Natural Birthstone

With their beautiful light blue color, these stones are some of the natural birthstones of those born while the world awaits the vernal equinox and spring (February 19 - March 19). This is a time when new life is about to burst forth, a time of faith and trust. Blue crystals bring you patience and respect.

Zodiac Crystal for Gemini

Agate is one of the zodiac stones for those born under the sign Gemini between May 21 and June 20, when the Earth is approaching summer. Gemini's constellation is known as the Sign of the Inventor and is seen as twins side by side in the sky. It is closely associated with the planet Mercury.

Those born under this sign can see both sides of an issue. They're flexible and can go with the flow, and can be lively and talkative or restless and nervous depending on their setting. Those born when the Sun is in Gemini are quick thinkers, quick-witted, and quick on their feet.


Meaning in Talismans and Amulets

Blue Lace Agates are Seeker Transformer crystals. Seekers contain the crystal energy structure that aligns the natural energy of the crystal to the natural power of the human mind to find the way to new horizons and new capabilities. They're pointers, directors, and compasses; the fresh start crystals. These are talismans of the scientist, the adventurer, the hunter, the wanderer, and the explorer. They're also crystals of the student and the researcher.

Transformer crystals enhance efforts to change our situations, prospects, health, outlook, or relationships. By transforming ourselves we transform our lives. We learn to dance, speak a new language, grow stronger, or become a better spouse or child. Seeker crystals with the earth power of the Transformer are excellent talismans to aid our efforts to grow, develop new capabilities, and change our lives.


Using Blue Lace Agate in Feng Shui

Water energy is traditionally associated with the North area of a home or room. It is associated with the Career and Life Path area, its flowing energy assuring a balance of energy as your life unfolds and flows.


Meanings in Ancient Lore and History

history lore books

Ancient Romans valued the Agate for its reputed medicinal and talismanic properties. Powdered and mixed with water, it was said to counteract serpents' venom. Pliny, a Roman historian, quoted the Magii as teaching in Persia that storms might be averted by burning Agates.

Agates were believed to make their wearers agreeable, and persuasive and give them the favor of God, guarding them against all dangers and enabling them to vanquish earthly obstacles, such as high winds and lightning. Ancient seafarers used Agate in amulets of protection from the fury of the surging ocean.

"The wearing of Agate was believed to be a cure for insomnia and was thought to induce pleasant dreams." 

Legends claim Agate to have the power to secure the wearer from danger and protect children from falling and endow their owners with strength, courage, and the ability to heal fears. 

Agate has a rich history of divinely revealed images within its natural veining, inclusions, and markings. Such images as the Virgin Mary, Jesus, John the Baptist, angels, and various other human forms have manifested themselves in these natural works of art and are found in churches and museums around the world.

Agate is believed to be the middle stone in the third row of the breastplate of the High Priest.
