Here's another "tiny pendant" for you! This one is a red lace agate with beautiful fine fortifications or lines resembling the walls of ancient forts, here protecting inner courtyards of crystals. In this stone the apparent pockets are actually completely filled with transparent agate. To me, this stone looks like a topo map of the rugged desert landscapes which are so dear to my heart.

There are many theories as to how the various types of agates develop, and I've listed a number of references below. Incidentally, for all of you who have written trying to buy my copy of the first Zenz book, Agates, as of this writing it is once again available and you can click on the link below to find it. You will treasure it and the others as well! And still, after three massive volumes, Zenz hasn't exhausted the subject. The more you learn about agates the more interesting they become, and the more beautiful!

Melody (below) says that both the Mexican Lace Agate and the red quartz increase energy. She also says that the lace agate allows one to laugh heartily and comprehend the games of the world. I hope you will order this little composition of soft pinks, peaches and whites and let it remind you to laugh as you wander the cliffs and valleys of life...
