There is evidence that this agate was worn as an amulet by the earliest inhabitants of what is now known as Mexico. Although no proof has been found to substantiate why these amulets were worn, whether ornamental or for healing, possible evidence in pictures may give clues. This stone was potentially worn by certain Aztecs for endurance and courage in battle and possibly worn by Mayans as a tribute or appeasement as well as protection from their god of lightning. Whatever the reasons for the wearing of these amulets, it is apparent that this stone was prized for its attributes in ancient civilizations as it is still prized today.
The Crazy Lace is usually found in two different color combinations. The most sought after for making cabochons is the wonderful combination of red, yellow, white and sometimes grey. It can be mostly red and white or mostly white and black as well. All, in my opinion, are spectacular. The best cabochon makers know exactly where to cut these stones to bring out the most stunning color and patterns. Today’s metaphysical community, wear or carry these healing agates for various reasons. As with all agates, which are great for wound healing, these are potentially helpful in the repair of skin due to acne or eczemas, etc. Most lacy stones have some element of helping with creativity and the Crazy Lace is no exception. Even though not a blue stone, this agate helps with creative speech because it helps the speaker to focus and explain ideas to others especially when speaking about the earth or benefits to all man-(people)-kind.
This stone’s help with focusing makes it a great stone for those with ADHD. It helps to increase one’s energy and encourage concentration so that one can stay on task and complete goals much easier. It creates balance in those struggling with ADHD as it aids the balance between the emotional and mental capacities which helps one make decisions. And also, considering those who have been dealing with ADHD for many years tend to have a low self-acceptance because of years of trying to fit in and not succeeding, this stone also provides a nurturing, self-acceptance frequency in the heart.
It has been said by some to promote laughter, and provide protection against absorbing too much emotional pain. Because of its balance between having quartz and other lesser frequency components within the one entity it is able to be of help to many chakras at one time. So in addition to helping one ground, speak, and have creative speech, it also helps the heart muscle stay strong. And because of the often confusing patterns of quartz and other minerals within this stone it has been said to aid the wearer with self defense against those wishing to do them harm, especially of the emotional kind. Apparently, when another wishes to do harm to the wearer of this stone, the energy of the wearer will align with the quartz which then is “hidden” within the other minerals which provides a type of stealth “cover” of sorts. This is why those who wish to do harm sync with stones of a lower frequency. Because their thoughts are of a lower frequency the two energies cannot integrate, and the negative thoughts become trapped between the layers and then dissipated to the earth’s energies.
It is a unique stone that demands more attention than it normally gets. Perhaps because of its “stealth” properties of alignment with energy, I apparently forget to tell people about this often “hidden” treasure. But those that need this stone have no trouble discovering it. Discover yours today! Whether wrapped and worn, or kept safely in pockets, this stone is one for all.
