Amethyst var ‘Grape’ Chalcedony - West Sulawesi, Indonesia

Amethyst var ‘Grape’ Chalcedony - West Sulawesi, Indonesia


 Mamaju Area, Sulawesi Barat Province, Sulawesi, Indonesia

45h x 40w x 20d  spheres to 5mm across


Collected winter 2016

Purple to lilac sparkly Amethyst spheres made up of radiating microcrystals growing together in botryoidal aggregates.

This one is quite sculptural and has the interesting addition of secondary crystal growth of single micro ‘sheaf-like’ gemmy crystals attached to the purple grape -like spheres.

An excellent quality specimen of this new find and very attractive.


This specimen is glued onto an acrylic base for easy display. No damage other than to areas where previous spheres were attached.
