This specimen consists of a slab of charoite, with minor calcite and tinaksite, cut and polished on all six sides. There is also a black crystalline mineral here that I cannot identify (pyroxene, perhaps?). The calcite and tinaksite are quite translucent. The charoite is a beautiful pale lavender to violet color. There is no damage to this specimen.
