History & Origin:

Grape Agate is the trade name for purple aggregates of tiny Quartz crystals with a spherical habit. The name reflects its purple colour & cluster form, which resembles a bunch of grapes. This material entered the mineral market in 2016 & quickly gained popularity for its interesting & unique shape. Mineralogically speaking, Grape Agate is not a true Agate, but more accurately referred to as a Botryoidal Purple Chalcedony. When magnified, each individual "ball" has a sparkling, druzy-like surface. It is found in the Mamuju area, near the western coast of Sulawesi, Indonesia, as well as in some locations within Utah, USA. While the violet coloured Grape Agate is highly desirable, sometimes the addition of Celadonite gives the specimen a beautiful mossy green hue.
