Classic shape gets a bold, purple twist in the purple crazy lace agate 12mm round beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these large beads feature a classic round shape mixed with eclectic purple color striped with erratic bands of burgundy and black. These beads feature color enhanced Mexican crazy lace agate, which is normally opaque white with swirling patterns. To emphasize these beautiful patterns, the purple color is added. Color enhancing is quite common amongst agates to make them fashionably relevant. Crazy lace agate is said to balance the physical, emotional and mental so that it is easier to make decisions. These beads are made from natural gemstones mined in Mexico, so no two beads will look exactly alike. Dakota Stones offers high-quality gemstones that are all useable in jewelry designs because every bead is checked to make sure they are cut and drilled correctly, that the finish is right and that the beads look distinct to their stone type.
