This is the red variety which is much scarcer than the yellow or white crystals. The last time we were at the mine we had a hard time finding any red pyrophyllite.

Pyrophyllite is a silicate mineral very closely related to Kyanite. It is a soft friable mineral with silky luster and can range in color from white to red. We dug this sample at Graves Mountain, Lincolnton, Georgia.

I dug some a while back and gave it to a sphere maker. Of course it had to be stabilized, but oh my goodness - what a wonderful sphere.

If anyone wants to try cabbing this material I do have larger samples, just convo me with the dimensions you are interested in and I will post a listing for your consideration.
