March 2017: Lace Agate 20% OFF

Save 20% off all Lace Agate throughout March 2017 in The Shops at Nature’s Art Village!

Agate is the mystical birthstone for September, as well as the birthstone for the zodiac sign of Gemini. The mineral agate is often called “the Earth Rainbow” because it’s found in almost every color the Earth can produce. It is named for the Achate River in Sicily, Italy, where it was first found thousands of years ago. Composed of silica, agate belongs to the chalcedony family of quartz. Lace agate is named because of the lace-like patterns within the stone. These patterns including bands, swirls, zigzags and spirals. Two types of lace agate are blue lace agate, found in Africa, and crazy lace agate, found in Mexico.

Metaphysically, lace agate is said to help calm and center one’s emotions. It helps to soothe nervous or worried disposition and can be used to calm overstimulated children.

Visit The Shops at Nature’s Art Village on Route 85 in Montville, Connecticut to see our full selection of lace agate samples, displays, beads, jewelry and giftware!
