I found this rather strange stone, it might be purpurite but I'm not sure.
I've file a section with a diamond file and it seems to be a deep metallic purple with some red spots.
It also has these tinny little very shinny spots all over the surface and throughout the filed section, like star dust.
I can also pick it up with a magnet.
It also feels rather heavy for it's size.
It was found in Australia near an old gold mine.
It doesn't seem brittle at all so perhaps it isn't purpurite?.
It's very hard to take a decent picture, but it is a rather nice looking purple stone with sparkles, especially in the water.
I'd love to know what it is.
