Botryoidal Chalcedony Specimens (Grape Agate)
Natural pieces of Botryoidal Chalcedony / Grape Agate, mined in Indonesia. This haven't been on the market for too long, and they have become very popular.
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, possibly because no-one can pronounce or spell Botryoidal Chalcedony!
Our current stock includes:
- #1 - 88x54.5x35MM - 265 grams - a pale purple and light green piece, which is significantly more dense than most of this material. It tends to have voids or grow into thin pieces; this one is quite a lot denser.
- #2 - 43x25x23MM - 19 grams - a nice smaller piece with strong purple colour.
Frequently asked questions and delivery information
How do we grade stones?
There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.
How does our ordering and delivery process work?
You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.
I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.
How do international orders work?
After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.
I’d like to return my order for a refund.
No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.
What payment methods do you accept?
I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
