    lepidolite?

    Here are a couple of rocks I picked up today. A lilac color makes me think maybe lepidolite? Some pegs around.

    Quartz? Don't look like mica to me.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    Yes. I would say that's quartz.

    How about spodumene? I have never seen lilac colored quartz around here, but but lithium minerals are common in the local pegmatites.

    Spondumene has cleavage, if memory serves. Not likely.
