A fairly large, reddish-purple Liddicoatite tourmaline with a sharply pointed and steeply slanted termination.
Compared to most, this thing is pretty big. I have also noticed that the colored specimens tend to top off at much smaller sizes than the darker pieces... why this is though, I cannot say.
