Please help Identify this stone because no one can seem to :/

I tried to take different angles as it can vary quite a lot but normally it looks a dark purple or grey with a silver sheen when tilted.  Thanks :3

Usually difficult to identify a polished rock, the process removes identifying characteristics.

It reminds me of some corundum I have seen in the past.  They were sold as star rubies and others as star sapphires.  

Do you see the chatoyancy in the sun light?

I second that! Certainly has the appearance of corundum.
