I would've loved to see the pegmatite that this monster came out of! It is one huge book of Lepidolite, a pink variety of Mica. It is a lovely lavender shade and doesn't have any definite hexagonal shape. It is very clean, though, and one could cut off thin sheets easily with a knife. I have not seen such a large, well-formed specimen before this, and I'm sure that it will arouse much interest.
