Dimension: 12.3ccm x 7.3cm x 4cm

Weight: 237g

Locality: Mamuju area, Sulawesi Barat Province, Sulawesi, Indonesia


A beautiful large display Chalcedony specimen of the so-called "Grape Agate".  A combination of fine brilliant purple radial aggregates "balls" that resemble a bunch of grapes with wonderful three-dimensional cavernous form and velvety luster.  Both sides are very well crystallized with beautiful colors, outstanding!


The color of Chalcedony from this locality can range from deep purple to very pale amethystine or whitish shades.  Poorly colored ones sometimes get dyed to reveal a more violet colour.  There are also less commonly green ones (colored by inclusions of some clay mineral), and even specimens with purple and green spherules together.
