Crazy Lace Agate, ah! Can one ever tire of exploring the mountains and valleys of this wonderful stone? Leigh Becker kept the natural shape of the stone so you can see how it grew. And there's a pretty little drusy-lined fairy cave in it too. It has very nice fortifications, some complete, and areas that filled in with various shades of "plain" grey, burgundy and white agate. You will find this necklace blends with a wide array of colors and it makes a nice accent for everything from a little black dress to a tee shirt where it can improve the unfortunate line of a crew collar.

Crazy Lace is one of over a hundred recognized varieties of Mexican agate. Unfortunately because of drug violence, very little agate is coming out of Mexico at this time, so examples like this are especially prized. Crazy Lace, from Ejido Benito Juarez, Chihuahua is one of several "lace" agates from Northern Mexico. Zenz says in Agates that "Lace agate from Northern Mexico is undoubtedly the best-known agate in the world." (BTW, this first volume is once again in print so readers can stop begging to buy my copy!! See below) In Agates III he says crazy lace is a hydrothermal vein agate in limestone and is crystallized pseudomorphic after calcite. The calcite is known as "dog-tooth" for its shape and this explains the zigzag patterns in the Crazy Lace. As we've pointed out before, while certain things are fairly well accepted in geological studies such as the theory of pseudomorphs, the peculiarities of agate formation are still debated.

That's a crop glyph on the back which I chose because I found it interesting and because it fit the space available. It is one of two nearly identical July 1991 glyphs which Freddie Silva says Myers and Percy superimposed and in so doing, found that the differences encoded three speeds of light. (SAY WHAT?!) This one is from West Kennett, the other appeared at Alton Priors. It is interesting that very recent studies in peer-reviewed journals are questioning the long-held view that the speed of light is a constant, though the work suggests that only very tiny fluctuations are possible. Myers and Percy say the three dramatically different speeds of light are the solar system light speed (slowest), interstellar, and intergalactic light speed (fastest). I have just gotten my copy of their book and immediately got stuck in the Prologue and first chapter. I bought it because the Amazon editorial review said it "is in part science-based, drawing on physics and astronomy, it is also deeply philosophical in its exegesis of ideas. This book demonstrates how the secrets of our ancient structures ... hold the key to the development of new energy and propulsion sources for the next millennium..." Sounds exciting! However the few pages I've read so far seemed like a very tedious imaginary history from billions of years ago, unrelated to the editorial review. So I did what I never do and what the Preface warns against, I skipped to the last chapter of the book ("Gwynmyrr and Panergon") where the 3 speeds of light are explained. As the Preface predicts, the chapter is unintelligible since I didn't read the preceding 441 pages. I assume one has to be patient to get to the parts the reviewers rave about. I certainly don't mean to bash the book after reading only a few pages though I did find an article in the Fortean Times which claims the material is channeled from The Nine. Generally I'm not too excited about channeled information (though Edgar Cayce provided extraordinary counterexamples of testable and highly beneficial channeled information). Since the authentic crop glyphs are so enigmatic perhaps this is the only way we will establish communication with whatever is making them. Percy wrote the lengthy appendix and gives two pages to our key-like glyphs. He manages to come up with a close approximation to the speed of light in the solar system by averaging the diameters of some of the circles in the glyphs, adding them, and throwing in a constant or two. From this he goes on to use information from the text and glyphs to calculate the other two speeds of light.

We must not be too quick to assume that all crop circles are hoaxed. You may remember that the famous astronomer Gerald Hawkins discovered a new theorem and corollaries in geometry from studying crop circles when everyone has assumed for a couple of thousand years that Euclid had finished geometry. I remember reading the challenge he posted in a letter to Science News more than 20 years ago in which he said he had discovered a new theorem, he showed the crop circle in which it was encoded, and he told the hoaxers to give us the theorem to prove they hoaxed the circle. Of course I tried to figure it out myself, but my geometry was way too rusty. Nobody came forward, not even a mathematician much less Doug and Dave, suggesting that crop circle had not been hoaxed, and eventually he published it himself. For the record, (as far as I know) Dr. Hawkins did not channel the theorem, he worked it out by studying the crop circle to see what it might reveal. So I must reserve judgment about the Myers and Percy book.

While working on the Amazon links for this page, I observed that the cover on the Silva book has changed. My copy has the famous Barbary Castle Tetrahedron from which physics student Chris Hardeman built a partially levitating 6' tall replica. Supposedly, "Within three seconds of switching on the power [from a microwave oven magnetron], the unit visibly levitated, an effect replicated in ten consecutive test runs. Clearly, a gravity shielding effect was taking place. 'It could accumulate a huge resonant standing-wave field, just the sort of thing Hutchinson was doing, and getting gravity nullification and inversion.'" (Quoted from How very peculiar then that the cover of Silva's book was changed.

To return to our Crazy Lace after dipping our toes into crop circles, channeled information, and conspiracy theory ruminations, Melody notes that Crazy Lace "can be used to help one to reach extremely high physical levels." Hmm, it appears we're right back to levitation! Not really though, she is referring physical energy and also to Awareness.

Please order the set today and I hope you will levitate for joy when you wear it!
