Crazy lace agate has powerful healing properties that are still relied on after hundreds of years. It’s also considered to be one of the earth’s youngest minerals in comparison to others.
Believed to have formed in the cretaceous period roughly 65 to 90 million years ago, crazy lace agate is a banded chalcedony or microcrystalline quartz mineral infused with iron and aluminium.
It’s a unique stone in that it’s often brightly coloured and filled with ornate, intricate patterns. The most common colours associated with the stone are browns, greys, black and golds. Occasionally, pinks and reds are also found swirled together to create a truly eye-catching red gemstone.
Agate is found all over the world. However, the wildly decorated crazy lace agate is predominantly found in northern parts of Mexico. Specifically, the stone is found within the area known as Chihuahua.
Crazy lace agate is a stone of happiness. In fact, in several parts of the world, it’s actually referred to by two other names: The Laughter Stone’ or “Happy Lace”.
While its energies may be strong, the stone is soothing and energising as it vibrates at a lower frequency than other gemstones. This property helps its bearers remain grounded. Furthermore, crazy lace agate is used for balance and protection. It wards off the evil eye to bring its bearer joy and absorb any emotional pain or turmoil, as well as help its bearer go with the flow when times are challenging.
Crazy lace agate is an excellent stone for physical healing. Similar to other agate stones, it’s used more in a preventative way by building up stronger immune systems and keeping bearers healthy. It’s also believed to protect you from any interfering or outside energies, enhancing your grounding.
