The locality for the blue agate are many small artisanal diggings, some of which are in both the Chiwawy District and the Nsanje District. The nearest village to the diggings is Ngabu village. Mr. Ngabu is the head of the village. This information was provided by Mario Picciani who lives in the area and has bought and sold the blue agate and the minerals from Mt. Malosa for more than ten years.
