Can blue lace agate go in sun?

Hi everyone,

I am new to the world of crystals and gemstones, and I recently purchased a blue lace agate. I have read conflicting information online about whether or not it is safe to place the stone in direct sunlight. Some sources say that it can cause the stone to fade or even crack, while others say that it is okay as long as it is not in the sun for too long.

I wanted to know if anyone has personal experience with this specific type of crystal and could provide some guidance. Should I keep my blue lace agate out of the sun altogether, or is it okay to place it on my windowsill for a short amount of time?

Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer!

Hello there,

I have also worked with blue lace agate for a while now and my experience has been slightly different from user 1. While it is generally safe to expose blue lace agate to sunlight, I have noticed that prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause some discoloration and fading in some cases.

To be on the safe side, I usually place my blue lace agate in a shaded area, where it can still receive natural light without getting too much exposure. If I need to give it a boost of sunlight, I allow it to rest in the sun for a short amount of time, taking it back to a shaded area when it's had what it needs.

I agree that all crystals are different, and it's always best to research and understand the unique properties of the specific stone you're working with to make sure you're treating it right.


Hello everyone,

I have been working with blue lace agate for some time, and I have placed it in direct sunlight several times. So far, I have not noticed any negative effects, and it has not faded or cracked.

That being said, I always keep the crystal exposed to the sun for a very short period of time, usually less than 10 minutes or so. I do not leave it out for extended periods because I'm aware that it can be sensitive to extreme temperature changes that come with direct sunlight exposure.

Generally, blue lace agate is considered a safe crystal to have in the sun, but it's still essential to keep an eye on it, especially for signs of discoloration or fading.

In conclusion, while blue lace agate can be exposed to sunlight, it is interested in being cautious and ensuring that you do not place the crystal in direct sunlight for too long.


Hi there,

I have worked with blue lace agate for a few years now and from my experience, it's generally safe to put it in the sun for short periods of time. However, extended exposure to direct sunlight might cause it to fade or even crack, so it's important to be careful.

I usually keep my blue lace agate in a bright but shaded area, like on a windowsill that doesn't receive direct sunlight. That way, it can still benefit from the natural light without getting too much exposure.

One thing to keep in mind is that all crystals are different and can react differently to sunlight, so it's always a good idea to do some research on the specific stone you're working with to make sure you're treating it properly.

Hope this helps!


Hi there,

I have also worked with blue lace agate and have occasionally placed it in the sun. From my personal experience, I have not witnessed any negative effects on my crystal due to direct sunlight exposure.

Still, I understand that all crystals have their unique composition, and it's always better to be cautious. I typically avoid exposing my blue lace agate to direct sunlight for too long and instead place it near a window that gets partial sunlight.

Overall, blue lace agate is a beautiful and gentle stone that should always be treated with care. It's important to research the specific crystal you're working with and determine the best way to care for it in different conditions.

I hope this helps!


Greetings everyone,

I am relatively new to the world of crystals, but I have also done some research and found that blue lace agate generally does not react negatively to sunlight. However, I have personally noticed that placing blue lace agate in direct sunlight for extended periods of time can cause some fading and discoloration of the stone.

To avoid any damage, I usually keep my blue lace agate in a room with natural light and away from direct sunlight. I have also heard that placing it near a window or in a location where it can still get natural light, but not direct sunlight, can help to recharge the energies of the crystal.

In conclusion, while sunlight might not essentially damage blue lace agate, it's best to be cautious with any natural stone and ensure you research enough about the crystal you're working with to get the best possible results.
