I have to be honest and say, if this specimen were entering a Beauty and the Beast contest, it would sit more comfortably in the latter!  But beauty is in the eye of the beholder and many a rare species is not blessed with great aesthetics.  Studying this large miniature, I cannot easily identify either the Tausonite or Lamprophyllite, but am sure they are present and think I know which one is which.  With the aid of a plentiful supply of photos in mindat (mindat.org) of both species you can pinpoint both, but they differ in colour somewhat from what has been reported from here.
