Scapolite is not a species, but is often assigned to gems as it is more recognizable to most collectors. The actual species are Meionite and Marialite.
Here we have a fine gem crystal with an attractive lilac purple color, and sharp, lustrous faces. It is WATER CLEAR throughout and has a stronger color down the "c" axis. This Tanzanian material is fairly new to the market, but already seems to be in very short supply in recent years. This is a great thumbnail and it looks better in person. No real damage, only some interrupted growth that I can see next to the termination.
