3.45" Spectacular Botryoidal Grape Agate - Indonesia

This is a top-quality, sparkling purple grape agate specimen from Sulawesi, Indonesia. It shows druzy purple chalcedony formations in a botryoidal structure like a bunch of little grapes, hence this material's name!

It comes with an acrylic display stand.

Grape agate is the name given to a purple botryoidal form of chalcedony found in the Batu Manakarra mining district on Indonesia's Sulawesi Island. It forms in clusters that often resemble bunches of small grapes, and colors can range from pale to deep purple and even green. Some specimens can be quite sparkly due to minute quartz crystal growing on the spheres. Grape agate is a relatively new material on the market, first exported from Indonesia around 2015.
