Kipawa Syenite Gneiss Complex, Western Quebec, Canada
This hand specimen consists of a syenite base rock to which is attached a few different bits of rough, amorphous Eudialyte. This material shows no evidence of crystal form and has both rough and conchoidal surface textures. It has the classic deep red-violet coloration and vitreous luster, and is transparent but heavily internally fractured.
