Grape Agate

A new type of chalcedony has entered the market recently, which is called Grape Agate.  It is properly named purple botryoidal chalcedony that looks like a bunch of grapes.  Grape Agate comes from Sulawesi, Indonesia and was discovered many years ago.  It wasn't until about a year ago that the Indonesian Government allowed for the material to be exported.  The Gem Shop has a limited number of these unique specimens available on our website.  These beautiful pieces are a great conversation piece and addition to any rockhound's collection.  Discover this new agate:
