This small hand specimen is almost entirely Purpurite by weight. It shows an interesting crystalline pattern on it's front and back. The luster of the specimen is also interesting, as from some angles the appearance is bright "purpurite" purple, from others it is a deep purple, and from one angle it appears a brownish-purple. The optical effects make it a nice specimen to hold and examine.
