Grape agate entered the international mineral market in 2016 from Indonesia and is very popular and valuable. However, it isn't actually agate at all- it's an unusual form of amethyst. The proper name is botryoidal amethyst, because the crystals form in small spheres, like a bunch of grapes. Some specimens have a druzy surface with small amethyst crystals visible.
Grape agate is a gentle stone that can increase intuition and psychic abilities. It vibrates at a high frequency, and gently opens and unites the crown and third eye chakras. It encourages self-confidence and stability. It is ideal for meditation and to facilitate lucid dreaming.
Affirmation: I am a divine being. I am at peace in my connection to the universe.
Chakra: Crown, Third Eye
