Botryoidal Chalcedony Specimens (Grape Agate)
A rough piece of Botryoidal Chalcedony / Grape Agate, sold as a mineral specimen. Intensely popular with collectors and crystal healers at the minute, and they make great gifts, too.
These specimen pieces usually show a decent range of the botryoidal nature, and are a good shade of purple. Some do have some edge and surface damage; the balls themselves are easy to dislodge so be careful when handling.
They are commonly referred to as ‘Grape Agate’ but are not a type of Agate. This name is purely a trade/marketing name, possible because no-one can pronounce or spell Botryoidal Chalcedony!
