Crazy Lace Agate was in my subscription box from The Crystal Council. I had never heard of it, so I was excited to try it out.
If you’re curious about it or want to use it, hopefully this post will help! Feel free to ask any questions if I didn’t cover something. Comments are always open!

I know the word “Crazy” can be offensive to some, but this is the actual crystal’s name and the other name is “Mexican Crazy Lace Agate,” and I feel like that one is even more offensive? So I apologize if this word is triggering or offensive. I’m just going off of what I’ve researched.
What is Crazy Lace Agate?
My mind goes numb when I read about the actual geology of stones, so if you are interested in that I apologize for my lack of attention span. Basically, Crazy Lace Agate is a Chalcedony and is in the Quartz family. It is “is a banded microcrystalline quartz infused with aluminum and iron,” according to this site.
Although it’s believed to have been created 90 million years ago, it’s considered “quite young” compared to other stones.
It is found only in Chihuahua, Mexico. At this point I would like to introduce you to my two familiars, my BFFs, my loves:
They are both 16 and I adore them so much. Anyway, back to Crazy Lace Agate:
What Does it Do?
More than anything, it’s known as a “happiness stone.” Several sites said to use it to overcome depression, but I’m going to tell you right now that there is no stone out there that will cure depression. If you are struggling, please seek help. Please take your prescribed medications. Depression isn’t “cured,” but rather managed through daily work and effort. Depression makes any work feel impossible, so it’s a never-ending cycle. I’m annoyed when I’m told that anything will “cure” my depression, much less a rock that sits there and does nothing.
If you decide to use Crazy Lace Agate for depression, please use it as a reminder to practice self care, or take your meds, but please don’t use it expecting it to cure anything. It won’t.
This is one of those stones that is said to do literally everything, including removing fear of spiders. I’m not going to test that out, but I also know that vague intentions yield vague results. I want to hone in on what The Crystal Council says about it, because that’s what drew me to work with it:
When I got my subscription box, I was right in the middle of multiple family crises and still struggling with my own place in the world. I felt pulled in 30 directions and didn’t really know which to pursue. I thought this would be a helpful stone to use.
How to Use Crazy Lace Agate
I have a set of recommendations for working with any crystal, but for this one specifically I am going to do the following:
- Hiking with it
- Carrying it on me
- Meditation (specifically a chakra cleanse meditation, as suggested above)
- Learning to check internally before taking external action
- Find which “societal norms” I’ve internalized that need to break
- Figuring out my life??? Idk lol
I will update this post and also post my journal while working with it, so check in next week! If you want to work with Crazy Lace Agate yourself, I have a free worksheet you can use to follow along:
