Showing all 11 results

Grape Agate, also known as Purple Chalcedony, is a rare and visually striking variety of chalcedony, a type of microcrystalline quartz. Its name comes from its resemblance to clusters of grapes due to its spherical formations. It is primarily found in Indonesia, particularly in the Mamuju area of West Sulawesi.

The unique purple hue of Grape Agate is caused by the presence of manganese within the crystal structure. It often occurs in botryoidal or grape-like formations, ranging from pale lavender to deep violet in color. The spherical shapes form as a result of the mineral’s growth process in gas cavities within volcanic rock.

Grape Agate is prized by collectors and enthusiasts for its beauty and rarity. It is commonly used in lapidary work, such as cabochons and beads, as well as in ornamental pieces and jewelry.

Metaphysically, Grape Agate is believed to possess properties of inner peace, emotional healing, and spiritual growth. It is thought to promote harmony and balance, encouraging self-reflection and insight.

Due to its limited availability and distinctive appearance, Grape Agate remains highly sought after in the world of gemstones and mineral specimens.
