Amethyst by the looks of it, the outer shell looks like quartz. Purple quartz is amethyst.

Amethyst is a most likely choice for purple minerals, however, this is not a good picture and clear crystal faces cannot be determined, so I would not assume it is amethyst without receiving additional information.
