This natural, powder-purple puff of a rock starts itโ€™s life as a combination of lithiophilite and triphylite. Once this stone is exposed to air (a process called oxidation) the lithium content is leached out of the stone while, simultaneously, manganese and iron form. The new mineral is called Purpurite, named after the purple color of the stone. ๐Ÿ’œ

This stone is most famously found in natural deposits in Namibia. Many specimens are altered through acid treatments to bring out a vibrant purple color. Others are actually the mineral Heterosite (much more common) being sold as Purpurite. The ones shown here are natural, untreated Purpurite specimens from Namibia. Other locations include the USA, Portugal, France, Australia, and Sweden.
