Blue lace agate is a rare variety of chalcedony. It is characterised by distinctive blue and white wavy bands. The material sometimes resembles blue agate but it is not the same mineral.
George Swanson discovered the deposit around 1962 although it was discovered by Willy Preiss. Preiss lived Windhoek, Namibia's capital. The deposit where blue lace agate is found is believed to date back approximately 54 million years. When George Swanson was given the opportunity to run the mine from his home in Springbok (South Africa) when he struck a deal with Preiss handed ownership over to Swanson. The deposit remained under his control and was mined until his death in 2010.
