In scientific terms, Crazy Lace Agate is a type of banded Chalcedony (also called Microcrystalline Quartz). However, it’s the infusion of iron and aluminum that creates the Crazy Lace Agate’s magical designs. Geologists think that this stone was formed 65 to 90 million years ago which makes it a relatively young stone.

Many types of Agates have been prized by civilizations such as the Minoans, Romans, Persians and ancient Hebrews. Crazy Lace Agate is unique in that it can only be found near Chihuahua, Mexico. In fact, archaeologists have discovered that this gemstone was worn as a crystal for protection in battle.

The lovely swirl patterns make Crazy Lace Agate the perfect stone for jewelry. Carvings made with this stone, particularly skulls, owls, cats and other mystical items, are quite popular as well. 

We love this crystal and recommend it to anyone who needs a little extra joy, balance or emotional stability. Let the healing properties of Crazy Lace Agate help you to enjoy life to the fullest!

Crazy Lace Agate Meaning

There’s a good reason why this is often referred to as the “Laughter Stone” and “Happy Lace”. The main Crazy Lace Agate meaning is all about bringing happiness and positivity, and it can bring about an inner feeling of calmness, self-confidence and self-appreciation.

As mentioned above, Crazy Lace Agate is a riot of colors and swirls that are the product of a unique formation. Each color within this stone has a specific meaning, and you can choose the stone that has the predominant color that fits your individual needs or taste.

Take a look at Crazy Lace Agate, and you’ll see that there is usually one color that is the dominant color. If the stone is mostly white, then that stone is good if you are seeking more purity and truth in your life. A predominately silver stone is thought to help the user with better inner reflection, and a gray stone is known to be useful during meditation.

While the stones with lighter colors can help with more spiritual matters, stones that are mostly brown or scarlet can bring a person a closer relationship to the earth. You may also experience greater willpower and physical energy.

No matter which type speaks to your heart, using this gorgeous crystal can bring about happy, loving and positive changes.

This powerhouse of a stone is known to be very useful during meditation as it brings about clarity of mind and connection to higher spiritual realms. In fact, it is thought to help the user find answers for difficult problems through this higher connection.

The random, natural patterns found on Crazy Lace Agate are said by some to contain images of religious icons, and this goes along with this stone’s ability to connect people with spiritual beings.

This stone is thought to be particularly effective for problems associated with the digestive system. If you have stomach, liver, gallbladder or other digestive complaints, then you may benefit from treatment with Crazy Lace Agate. An experienced practitioner may create an elixir, or they may place the stone on your abdominal area. It’s also thought to be good for all types of hollow organs.

The healing properties of Crazy Lace Agate are also thought to be effective in treating varicose veins, blood vessel issues and problems with the heart. It can also be used on bug bites and skin problems.

We really love Crazy Lace Agate for its beautiful energy. Use this stone during meditation or other practices, and you just may find yourself feeling lighter, more balanced and more content than you have in years!

Crazy Lace Agate is strongly connected to both the crown and third eye chakras. When these chakras are open and aligned, then you’ll be able to benefit from an aura that’s healthy and a yin and yang that are in harmony.

How To Use It

There are so many wonderful ways to use Crazy Lace Agate that you will find it easy to incorporate this healing crystal into just about every aspect of your life.

One beautiful and empowering way to use Crazy Lace Agate is in jewelry. Wearing this stone in a necklace, ring, bracelet or earrings will not only ensure that the stone will stay close to your body, but it can also send its happy vibes to others around you. If you’re not into jewelry, it’s ok. Placing the stone in a pocket or purse is very effective as well. It’s the act of having Crazy Lace Agate near you that’s the important thing.

Many people who practice feng shui find Crazy Lace Agate to be an important part of their environment. This stone uses what’s known as metal energy, so using it in an area where you want to create an atmosphere of creativity, concentration or togetherness can be very powerful.

If you are going to use this stone for feng shui, we would recommend placing it in areas that face west or northwest. Also, choose stones with more white or gray tones for best results.

Not only will the actual properties of Crazy Lace Agate help you during meditation, but you can also reflect on its meaning while you meditate as well.

You don’t have to always use this stone by itself. It pairs quite nicely with other stones such as Carnelian, Fluorite, Red Jasper or Citrine.

No matter how you choose to use Crazy Lace Agate, this lovely and unique stone will bring happiness and positivity to your life.

Cleansing

As with any healing crystal, Crazy Lace Agate needs to be cleansed. Because your stone will absorb everything from oils on your hands to negative energy, we suggest cleansing Crazy Lace Agate every one to two weeks. This will help to remove any physical or spiritual blockages that can prevent your stone from performing at its full potential. 

There are a few ways that you can cleanse and charge your Crazy Lace Agate. Let’s take a look at a few simple steps. Whichever method you choose, just remember to have a positive intention while cleansing or charging your stone. Ask that all negative and dark energies be removed safely.

It is also recommended that you cleanse and charge your gemstone before you use it for the first time. This will ensure that any blockages or negative energies are washed away, and you will have a chance to get to a feel for your stone before it becomes part of your healing practice.

The easiest way to cleanse your Crazy Lace Agate is with a gentle kind of soap, warm water and a soft brush. Never use a hard brush, harsh cleaners or chemicals to clean your stone. This is because doing so may damage this amazing stone. It is, however, perfectly fine to add herbs such as lavender or sage to the cleansing water. 

Some people cleanse their Crazy Lace Agate in salt water. As this can cause damage if there is a crack in the stone, we do not recommend using this method. 

There is a third method that many find to be quite effective. If you have other stones, such as quartz, then you can just put your Crazy Lace Agate in with these stones for 24 hours or so. Just make sure that the stones you use have already been cleansed. Your Crazy Lace Agate will become purified through its contact with these other stones.

Don’t forget to charge your stone. This is a very important step and is easy to do. Sit quietly with the stone in your left hand. Focus on the healing that you need the stone to bring to your life. Let yourself feel a sense of trust and connection.

Zodiac Connection

Even though Crazy Lace Agate is associated with zodiac signs like Virgo, Pisces and Libra, it’s strongest connection is as a stone for Geminis.

Geminis, born between May 21 and June 20, are known to be outgoing, intelligent and a bit impulsive. The positive properties of Crazy Lace Agate are thought to bring about and enhance the upbeat nature of a Gemini. It can also help a Gemini curb some of their impulsiveness by bringing calmness and grounding.

If you are not one of the above mentioned zodiac signs, you can still benefit from the positive, joyous and harmonious energy of Crazy Lace Agate.

Final Thoughts

The meaning of Crazy Lace Agate is both inspiring and calming. With such positive energy and properties, it’s no surprise that this stone is one of the most popular choices among crystal healers.
