Esthetic and undamaged specimen with several shades or purple, violet and green colors, a very rare combination. There is a lot of this material on the market now in all price ranges but little is of this quality. Attractive on all sides, a 360 degree piece. The exciting new finds of Indonesian Chalcedony or purple grape agate has been big news in the mineral world. This piece has very well defined balls and a velvet-matte luster. We dug through tons of this material and found just a few perfect, complete, colorful and sculptural pieces. This one is from that top .001 percent, pristine and pretty.
