This Charoite specimen is in the form of another slab, one of whose main faces is polished to a bright sheen. Two thin faces have been cut into its sides, but these, like the other large face, have been sanded but not polished. The material has a moderate lavender-to-violet coloration and its visual texture suggests a very fibrous habit. There are a few patches of discoloration in the material that suggest the presence of other minerals, but these are small and rather difficult to define.
