Blue lace agate is one of the most popular and colourful patterns in North American agates and is found throughout the United States and Mexico. The name comes from the fact that at first glance, this pattern can be confused easily with a delicate-looking hand-made French lace. Blue lace agate is a plated variety of chalcedony, which is itself a form of fine-grained quartz. Blue lace agates are chemically similar to the opaque white quartz that makes up the popular gem known as milky quartz or Carnelian, but their colouration comes from pyrite, an iron sulfide mineral whose crystal formation creates the gold and bronze stripes. Pyrite's yellow-gold colour can often be seen in contrast to its neighbours in polished blue lace.
