This beautiful Crazy Lace Agate necklace is a part of our Bee Natural series. Crazy lace agate (also known as Mexican Agate) is young in comparison to many other minerals on Earth. Found exclusively within the area known as Chihuahua, in Northern Mexico. Crazy lace agate is believed to have been created in the cretaceous period, about 65-90 million years ago. There is evidence this agate was worn as an amulet by the earliest inhabitants of Mexico for endurance and courage in battle. Crazy lace agate is a banded chalcedony (microcrystalline quartz) that's infused with iron and aluminum and is often brightly colored and complexly patterned. This produces the creamy browns, blacks, greys and golds (and occasional pinks or reds) swirled together in this stone.
Since Crazy Lace Agate is a natural stone, each necklace is unique and colors may vary.
Our necklaces are handcrafted using the finest materials to ensure that your necklace will be a beautiful addition to your wardrobe for many years to come. Clean crazy lace agate using warm soapy water and a soft brush. Although it has a high hardness, crazy lace agate can still be scratched or damaged by gemstones with a higher hardness, as well as other materials. Avoid using household chemicals when cleaning crazy lace agate beads, components or jewelry. This stone can be sensitive to heat, especially if they are dyed stones, and prolonged exposure to sunlight can fade color-enhanced types. Store crazy lace agate inside a fabric-lined box or wrapped in a soft cloth.
