3.3" Purple Polished Charoite Slab - Siberia
Includes an acrylic display stand.
Charoite is translucent lavender to purple in color with a pearly luster. It is strictly massive in nature and fractures are conchoidal. It has an unusual swirling, fibrous appearance, sometimes chatoyant, and that, along with its intense color can lead many to believe at first that it is synthetic or enhanced artificially. It is almost always accompanied by a black mineral known as aegirine, as well as an orange mineral known as tinaksite.
