Crazy Lace Agate - Natural
Crazy Lace Agate is Mexican Crazy Lace Agate. Often - it is dyed in fun, fashion colours. However - it has a quiet beauty all it's own should you care to spend a quiet moment appreciating it for what it is.
Agate is a Micro-crystaline (not big, gemmy crystals) form of quartz, and characteristically is at least partially semi-translucent. It is hard, takes a very nice polish, is tight-grained and comes in an amazing array of colours. In addition to its natural range of colours, it also takes dyes well and can be had in a stunning array of fashion colours. It often exhibits banding and flow patterns. It is formed in pockets left in lava, which over time, have filled with deposited minerals.
Metaphysically - the healing properties of Crazy Lace are retained. Lace Agates are said to keep the wearer well-balanced while helping to banish fear.
We try to choose consistent stock, but the nature of natural stones is that there will be inconsistency between strands and between individual beads.
