History | Science

Although called an "agate" in the crystal world, grape agate is really a botryoidal chalcedony. Since the round structure and the often-found purple color do make a lot of sense, however, we'll stick with the market name, too.
For many years, this rare mineral was only found in a small section of Indonesia, although some has recently been found in Utah.
Grape agate formed when lava flowed into cold seawater during the Miocene era, creating andesite "pillows" that gathered minerals from the water, filling the voids between the pillows. Over time, with heat and pressure, these deposits became grape agate.

Metaphysical Properties

Since it was so recently discovered, we have no record of grape agate in the ancient world to know how it would have been used. However, its unusual round clusters and purple/blue/green hue gives it undeniably powerful properties of focus and stability. It is often used during meditation and is great for providing rest during times of upheaval.

Photography

Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
