An impressive, perfect purple stalactitic Chalcedony finger with wet luster that is viewable on all sides, a 360 degree piece. The exciting new finds of Indonesian Chalcedony or grape agate has been big news in the mineral world. We looked through literally tons of material but found just a few perfect, complete, colorful and sculptural pieces. This one is from that top .001 percent, pristine and pretty.
