☀️ The colors in the photos represent the actual color as accurately as possible. Photos are most often taken indoors, during the day and in natural light that could either be bright sunshine or cloudy overcast natural lighting depending on the weather. If I need to photograph specimens during the evening hours, I use a ring light. Colors may vary on different phone and computer screen systems. We do not under any circumstances, edit our photos.
💜 Botryoidal Purple Chalcedony was discovered in Indonesia in 2016.
Botryoidal is a term used to describe sphere-shaped crystals that have naturally formed together. Boitroydal purple chalcedony is called grape agate due to its resemblance to the fruit.
The name "grape agate" has stuck as a marketing term. However, the name is a misnomer which means that the name is scientifically incorrect. There are no arguments with "grape" because of its close resemblance to the fruit. But, the use of "agate" draws objections
Chalcedony is not scientifically its own mineral species, but rather a form of Quartz in microcrystalline form. Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline form of silica, composed of very fine intergrowths of quartz and moganite.
Grape agate is a tranquil and gentle stone. It promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. It allows for deep and intense levels of meditation in a short period of time.

Such a beautiful specimen of botyroidal purple chalcedony, and very well-priced! It is even more beautiful in person, and larger than I expected. Communications with Nichole were a real plus, as she is very knowledgeable about this rare stone. The stone was packaged very, very carefully, along with two tumbled stones as gifts, and shipped super quickly. I highly recommend SimpleMindandMineral, and will be ordering from them again soon!
