A silky shine covers the purpurite with its nuances from dark pink to red-violet and makes it a real eye-catcher among the minerals. The rock is named for its crimson color. The true purple dye is still one of the most expensive dyes in the world and was used in ancient times to dye the togas of important figures in Roman politics. Purpurite also offers this exclusive color power and is used in popular belief when inspiration and creativity are required. In addition, it is traditionally said to be able to increase concentration and thus awaken mental clarity.
