Crazy lace agate gemstone beads (sometimes known as fashion jasper beads) offer dramatic twisting and turning bands of color. The untreated, natural hues of these semiprecious gemstone beads most commonly consist of yellow and gray, sometimes with shades of pink, tan, orange or red intermingling in the "crazy" twists and turns. This variety of semiprecious agate offers some of the most pretty and intricate mineral patterns offered by Mother Nature. Keep in mind that each crazy lace agate bead will display a unique pattern; they will not look identical to the images below.
Dyed crazy lace agate has the same dramatic patterns, with the increased intensity of bright pinks, vivid turquoise blues, unusual purples, and malachite-like greens. We try to make sure our dyed stones are colorfast, but some batches may fade over time, or with exposure to some chemicals. (Hairspray and perfumes often contain harsh solvents.)
