FAQsFrequently Asked Questions - and their answers
Where is it from?
All of our Laguna lace agate comes straight from our mine in Chihuahua, Mexico
Why do you call it Laguna lace?
Our material has many beautiful crazy lace patterns with the types of fortifications often found in Laguna agate. Laguna + Crazy Lace = Laguna Lace. See our about Laguna Lace page for more info.
Does the rough rock have cracks and fractures?
Not normally- we don't blast, it's mined with our excavator, most fractures are healed.
Is this a new find?
No, it was commercially mined by hand on the surface 20 years ago or so, when only smaller quantities were brought out. Now we are able to offer larger quantities.
What quality is the mine run?
Our mine run is a high grade material. It represent only about 50% of our production. Lesser quality and smalls suitable only for tumbling are sorted out and sold as second quality.
