A roughly hemispherical mound composed of light grey-purple 'lepidolite', some of which forms slightly divergent stack of slightly curved plates. 'Lepidolite' has recently been discredited as a discrete mineral species, but the term is still widely used for pink to purple micas. Lepidolite samples are mostly likely a member of the polylithionite-trilithionite series. Sits nicely on its naturally flat base without needing a stand. No damage.
