Blue Lace Agate is translucent with beautiful banded and lacey shades of light blue, white and clear agate. It is often called Blue Chalcedony as one of the Chalcedony Group in its narrow sense, as technically, chalcedony is any form of microcrystalline or cryptocrystalline quartz, meaning any form of quartz whose crystals are too small to be seen without high magnification.
The rest of Chalcedony Group are sold under individual variety names, or as jasper or agate. While the definitions overlap, jasper usually refers to an opaque, solid colored stone. Agate is defined either by its translucency, or by having a pattern to its colors.
Bloodstone, chrysoprase, carnelian, onyx, sardonyx are all varieties of chalcedony gemstones. They start with the same chemical composition as the Blue Lace Agate then other minerals get into the mix to create the other types of stones.
