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.
