Have you ever seen a rock that was reminiscent of colorful lace? With concentric lines, squiggles and shapes, not to mention the brilliant colors, this week's feature rock is pretty crazy. That's why it is called Crazy Lace Agate (although I sometimes just call it Mexican Lace Agate) and it is found in Mexico.
On the outside, you can see a bit of color but the rocks below basically look like rocks, right?
When they're put through the saw to create a slab (slice), very quickly you can see just how awesomely colorful and intricate are their designs. I mean, we're talking about rocks! And, yet each one is incredibly unique.
So, when they are cut, shaped and polished for wearing as jewelry, they create stunning pieces. Generally, their design and coloring is different on each side so it's like having two pieces of jewelry in one.
Next to chrysocolla, my all time favorite stone, I think Crazy Lace Agate comes in a strong second as my personal favorites! What's your favorite rock? Feel free to share it with us on any of our social media pages (below).
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week and, as always, Rock On!
