    Can you guess the purple mineral?

      lepidolite? Weird occurrence, though since its normally in pegmatites if I remember correctly?

      Or,.. if this is a flow - amethyst in rhyolite? (I'm just making stuff up now)

      Good guesses, based on color, but it's neither of these. You'll have to find my "Sexy Geology" blog post for the answer.

      Interesting... my first reaction was some odd metamorphic mineral given the habit, but silly me -- I let the colour lead me a different direction... I probably never would have come up with that one though... interesting!
