This is very interesting new material that was introduced to the market in the latter half of 2016. It was discovered some years back along one of Indonesia's coastal areas, Manakarra Beach in the Mamuju Area in West Sulawesi. Since its discovery the Indonesian government has not allow it to be collected or exported. Last year they officially started allowing collecting and exporting of this very unique mineral. It has been marketed as Grape Agate as a form of Botryoidal Chalcedony, but last year it was chemically analyzed by John Attard of Attard Minerals in San Diego and determined that what makes it purple is the same iron oxide impurities as amethyst. The green colors were determined to be Celadonite. When they mix the mineral displays a variety of colors in the teal, blue, green range. Grape Agate is a Seeker Transformer Crystal. Seeker Transformers are talismans used when the desire is to find a way to transform a part of one's life to a more desirable state. Seekers are used when we need some help to find a new path, a new approach, or in any quest to gain that which we desire but do not yet possess. When they possess the Earth Power of the Transformer, they have the power to aid us to find new relationships that will transform some part of our life. Choose these by the vibrancy and interest of their designs. Your mind needs to connect with their color and design for best results. Like the sleepy, misty time of year that produces its rays, violet (purple) is the color ray of intuition, dreams, nobility, and luxury. As the color ray of influence that begins the cycle of life once again, violet is one of the most powerful rays in nature. It inspires awe and invites a feeling of mystery and magic, reminiscent of the mystery and magic of life’s rejuvenation and renewal. Violet color rays are powerful aids in interpreting our dreams, inspiring us to great deeds and accomplishments, and putting the magic back in our lives and relationships. Violet is the color of music; it stirs us, transforms us, and connects us in seemingly mysterious ways to our dreams, our past, and ourselves.
