New Discovery!!! Purpurite
from the Pegmaties of Brasil! Opportunities come and go when you scout for Gemstones and this was a real surprise to find shiny manganese-rich Purpurite Specimen in Brasil. This material is found in thick Pegmatite
layers together with Kunzite
and light colour Morganite
. Purpurite is a deposit of Phosphate that filtered Manganese during the evolution of the rock formation approximately 165 million years ago.
