PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Matt Silky Finish! A world first, polished Purpurite! This material has been polished to perfection into a range of different shapes. The polishing is done in Namibia itself but in order to maintain the chatoyancy the material is soaked in resin and as a result a thin layer is left in place. Alternatively, they are left 100% natural without any treatment. This is 100% natural but processed in a way to maximise the beauty of the natural features. Purpurite is a Manganese Iron Phosphate mineral with varying amounts of Iron depending upon its source. It occurs in colour ranges from brownish black via purple and violet to dark red. Purpurite forms a series with the Iron-bearing endmember Heterosite, FePO4. We obtain Purpurite from Namibia. Purpurite doesn't form crystals but rather occurs as a beautiful metallic chatoyancy in veins and along fracture plains of the host rock. Price is grade dependent. Items are as shown.
