The twisting and turning bands makes it look like something not serious. But on the flip side, you can wonder, how nature can produce such a beautiful specimen. Agate can be found all over the world, different colors, banding, formed in volcanic lava pockets where gases escaped, and filled with silicon dioxide,
The banding and stripes, occurred by different minerals, what mixed with Chalcedony. In this stone you can even see the direction of the flow. Crazy lace not only a good-looking jewelry piece, it has many metaphysical, and spiritual meanings, its properties mostly, to eliminate thing what we fear of. Spiders, ghosts, and places what haunted, and everything what has negative vibes. Not considered as a typical healing stone, but its energy useful to gain self-acceptance, and confidence.
