These are gorgeous violet purple Lepidolite tumblestones, which measure 20-30MM approximately.
These stones make an interesting contrast piece with dark stones, especially black stones. They have amazing sparkly little pieces of Mica embedded into the surface of the stone. Stones with pinky-purple colours like these are quite hard to find, but if you wanted to start a collection, I'd suggest having a look at Rhodonite or Rhodochrosite too.
The more of these tumblestones you buy, the cheaper they get - up to a point, of course!

What are tumblestones?
Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
