Crazy Lace Agate is a banded Chalcedony in the Agate variety of crystals. It shows seven colors linked to the primary chakras with shades of gold and silver in a swirling pattern of eyes, orbs, laces, and webs.

Is Crazy Lace Agate the same as Lace Agate? No, Crazy Lace Agate is different from Lace Agate. The former has complex, multicolored patterns in contrasting colors, while the latter shows an array of pastel colors in lacy patterns. 

This variety’s crazy-lacy patterns are due to mineral deposits from 60 to 90 million years ago. That’s why they’re called Happy Lace. 

True to its name, Crazy Lace Agate looks incredible and makes you feel joyful. 

Did you know most of the Crazy Lace Agate comes from Chihuahua in Northern Mexico? That’s why it’s called Mexican Agate. Happy Lace stone has also recently been found in Brazil, Australia, the United States, Namibia, and Botswana.

Crazy Lace Agate Metaphysical Properties and Benefits

Crazy Lace Agate is mainly associated with the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, and Crown Chakras

One of the main reasons why Mexican Agate is so special is its multicolored appearance; hence, it opens all the primary and three secondary chakras. They are Earth Star, Soul Star, and Solar.

The Earth Star Chakra brings you protection, Soul Star attracts spiritual guidance, and Solar welcomes good fortune. 

Mexican Agate is also linked to Mercury in astrology, beckoning intelligence, courage, and creativity. That’s why Crazy Lace Agate should be worn by the Gemini and Aries signs.

It is associated with Fire, Earth, and Wind elements, bringing passion, strength, grounding, and manifestation.

Crazy Lace Agate is associated with the West African Goddess of Creation, Mawu or Mahu; the Egyptian God of Wisdom, Thoth; the West African Trickster God of Luck, Eshu; and the Greek Goddess of Chaos, Eris

Happy Lace is linked to the cosmic vibration numbers of 5, meaning knowledge, and 7, meaning luck.
