This specimen is a mass of intergrown charoite and quartz, polished to a high gloss on one side. The charoite is a lovely purple in color and is opaque and has a dull luster (except where polished). The quartz is translucent, with enough clarity to reveal inclusions of charoite in a myriad of tiny wispy filaments, enough to color the quartz somewhat purple.
