For natural shape and deep color, try the purple crazy lace agate 8x10mm tumble nugget beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these beads feature a pebble shape and swirling purple color mixed with 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 promote mental agility, liveliness and variety and also encourages flexibility in thinking and action. These beads are made from natural gemstones mined in Mexico, so no two beads will look exactly alike.
