Purple Chalcedony 'Grape Agate' Thumbnail Specimen from Sulawesi, Indonesia


This is a specimen of botryoidal purple chalcedony, colloquially known as 'Grape Agate', from Manakarra Beach, Mamuja Area, Sulawesi, Indonesia. This is the only locale where this type of chalcedony is found, and it is typically this light purple color - hence the name 'Grape Agate'! It is a form of quartz that has taken on these round, botryoidal shapes. This specimen has a few areas with a druzy look, where the tiny crystal points on the surface reflect the light. Grape agate is a truly unique mineral!

This specimen is approximately 1.6cm x 1cm x 1.1cm. You will also receive a complementary 'perky' display box and a label with the mineral name and the locale where it was mined.
