Many different varieties of agate can be found around the world, crazy lace which is part of the group known as "lace agates" come from two states in Mexico. The markings in this type of agate are caused in part by alternating bands of chalcedony in addition to other minerals which may be present such as quartz, calcite, aragonite and baryte.
Agate is known to be one of the oldest of all minerals and references to it can be traced back more than two thousand years. It's a relatively hard stone which grades 7 on Mohs scale of mineral hardness which is part of the reason why it's so popular as a lapidary material.
This crazy lace agate pendant is an eye-catching piece of jewellery and as with all of the pieces in our collection, it has been crafted by hand by one of a small team of artisans with whom we have been working for many years.
