Purpurite Unprocessed Stones

Purpurite is a mineral, manganese phosphate, MnPO4 with varying amounts of iron depending upon its source. It occurs in colour ranges from brownish black via purple and violet to dark red. In these stones the purpurite is predominantly iridescent purple. 

Description of these Purpurite Unprocessed Stones

Randomly shaped stones made up significantly or predominantly of purpurite crystals. Purpurite crystals are granular so there is no visible characteristic crystal shape. The best description is that the purpurite crystals impart a beautiful iridescent purple colour to significant sections of what would otherwise be normal stones. Other minerals are also present in each stone so don't expect a uniform purple colour. In the light the iridescent purple is possibly one of nature's most dramatic and stunning colours.

Where items are approximately spherical the size refers to their diameter. Where items are long and thin (such as crystal or blade shapes) or any other shape, then the size refers to their largest dimension. It is important to see the pictures to know exactly what the appearance is. Our pictures do not showcase the best, they are as realistic as possible and include a R1 coin to demonstrate the actual size.
