Crazy Lace Agate has quickly become one of my most favorite gemstones to work with. I mean, just look at it...it's gorgeous!!
Crazy Lace is called the Laugher Stone, or "Happy Lace". It is associated with sunny Mexican fiestas and dancing and brings joy to those who wear it. It is not a stone of protection, but of support and encouragement...elevating thoughts and promoting optimism. Its graceful design in random lacy patterns creates a circular flow of energy...stimulating for the mind and attitude.
It is a variety of banded Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It is predominantly white with laters of creamy browns, blacks and grays. Some may include layers yellow ochre, gold, scarlet and red. Agate is sometimes called the earth rainbow because, in its various forms, the concentric bands in nature form nearly every color the earth can produce...including a colorless form.
