Purpurite is a manganese iron phosphate mineral with a hardness of 4.5 to 5. Its crystal system is orthorhombic. It occurs most often as an oxidation mineral on the surfaces of a related mineral called Triphylite. Purpurite’s name is derived from its vivid purple color. The best specimens have been found primarily in Namibia.
