An uncommon gem material with a surprisingly consistent bodycolor and a nice polish.  Phosphosiderite forms as botryoidal masses that can yield rough for cabs like this - it is popular in metaphysical circles. There are few gem materials that form in quite this combination of peachy purple; it is quite distinct.
