Aztec Purple Lace Agate
Durango, Mexico
    The Aztec Lace Agate is a form of vein agates that tend to be broken into clunks when mining making it bit hard to cut a whole pattern out of the clunks. The agates are mainly lavender to purple, sometimes with yellow and orange colors. Apparently, the best materials can be obtained only from old stocks even some Mexicans recently brought in smaller pieces.  Important Note! The colors will fade if left exposed to sunlight too long and it's recommended that they be protected from sunlight exposure when not using or displaying any specimens.
