Show off how beautiful the natural patterns of gemstones can be with the purple crazy lace agate 30x40mm oval beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these wide oval-shaped beads are large enough to be used as focal pieces in necklace designs. The large surface makes it easy to see the purple colors swirled with patterns 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 encourage security and self-confidence thanks to its warm, protective properties. 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.
