Amethyst / Chalcedony - grape Agate
Mamuju area, Sulawesi Barat province
Sulawesi Island, Indonesia
5.6 x 5.2 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
new year 2021

It is hard not to like the "grape agates" from the finds in and near Mamuju. The best of these are a wet looking cluster of balls with vivid purple color and sometimes with some green balls for contrast. Most have at least some damage or contacts, but this piece seems to be fully perfect. This has fine luster and color from all angles, a floater. One of our favorite finds of the past few years, the location where the best color was found is said to be finished, we hope that is not so.
