A variety of jadeite. A lavender coloured dense, cryptocrystalline material consisting mainly of jadeite, which is used for carving and as an ornamental stone. It's technically a rock, not a mineral, and also contains minor albite (3-8 wt.-%), tremolite (2-5 wt.-%) and traces of aegirine and aegirine-augite. The base colour is caused by manganese (originally it was attributed to iron, while various tinges are caused by traces of vanadium, nickel and manganese in varying proportions).
