This mouth-watering specimen is totally unique: a large cluster of bubbly grape agate, from Indonesia! Grape agate is actually a type of botryoidal amethystine chalcedony--botryoidal means globular, or grape-like clusters (fitting!). This large and substantial specimen has a unique structure and appealing and varying shades of purple. It would look equally beautiful displayed flat, as shown, or upright on a stand.
Grape agate is not a true agate at all--rather, it is an amethystine chalcedony variety (as chalcedony is also a form of quartz, the combination is a unique intergrowth of related minerals.)
*NOTE: Amethyst and chalcedony should not be displayed for prolonged periods in sunlight, as its color can fade.
Dimensions: 6.00" x 4.38" x 2.75" (156mm x 114mm x 72mm)
Weight: 522 grams (18.4 oz, 1.15 lbs)
Keywords:Amethyst--the purple quartz variety. Amethyst is associated with the crown chakra, with spiritual guidance and higher self.
