It is one of the few gemstones that is so distinctive that a gemologist can confidently identify on site. The color ranges from violet to purple. It has distinctive black, white and brownish swirls. It is also called lilac stone and charoite jade. This violet crystal is often found with Quartz and manganese inclusions. The colors and patterns of the stone also vary. They can be lavender, lilac, violet, and deep purple and the patterns are swirling white, transparent, black, or orange depending on the other minerals present in the stone. Black colorations are Augite, transparent ones are Microcline Feldspar, and the orange ones would be Tinaksite.
