Cool looking Chalice!
I've never fragged a Chalice, but I think you could approach it 2 different ways.
You could either try to break off certain ears or leaves of it with just your hands, although this is kind of a gamble, because it could break in places you don't want it to, or use a fine-toothed coping saw, similar to a hack-saw, and cut off the pieces you want to frag.
Also, try to make sure the new frags have at least one edge that is uncut, new growth. This way the entire circumference doesn't have to try to heal. The frag will have a better chance at surviving this way.
Then just glue them to some plugs, or rubble rock.
Some people also dip fresh cut frags, but I'm not sure in what.
