This raw purpurite crystal from Divino das Laranjeiras, Minas Gerais, Brazil features a metallic glitter-like purple colour.

Purpurite is a rare mineral that belongs to the monoclinic crystal system and is typically purple in colour. It is a complex oxide of manganese and iron, with the chemical formula Mn5(PO4)2(OH)4. Purpurite is often found in the oxidized zone of manganese deposits and is associated with other minerals such as pyrolusite, rhodonite, and rhodochrosite.

Purpurite is not a well-known mineral and has only been found in a few locations around the world, including the United States, Russia, Brazil, and South Africa. It is a relatively soft mineral, with a Mohs hardness of 4-5, and is not often used as a gemstone. However, it is prized by collectors for its unusual purple colour and rarity.
