A beautiful large cabinet sized, dual-sided display specimen loaded with incredibly rich purple color "balls" of this new "Grape Chalcedony / Grape Agate" from Indonesia. I think my favorite aspect of the piece is how each side tells a different story as the front features hundreds of good sized spheres with what is the best color we’ve seen from the material combined with stellar brilliant luster. The reverse side of the piece feature smaller "balls" of Chalcedony with a slightly more subdued luster and a softer overall hue. Amazingly for a piece this size, there is virtually no damage! There is a small spot on the end / bottom where it was detached from the pocket wall, but it does seem to have some recrystallization so it’s nearly a "floater" as it’s crystallized about 99% of the way around. It’s not just a flat plate, as it does have good relief in the form of a raised area on the top / side. It will display beautifully in a case, as the color, luster and form will immediately draw the eye. Pieces of this size with the strong purple hue along with a visible gleaming luster were few and far between in my experience, so don’t miss out if you want one of the bigger specimens with all the best qualities of the material.
