This hand specimen consists of a chunk of massive Sugilite. It shows no evidence of crystal form and does not appear to be freshly damaged, as its surface is quite dusty and dirty. It has the standard pale violet/lavender color and dull luster of its specie, and is opaque. A thin crust of white material rests on one spot, but there is no other material present.
