The small amount of black in this charoite is a perfect contrast with the saturated purple of the charoite. This 36x23mm stone is backed for added strength. Sometimes a stone that is rare and sought after is cut thinner to make more cabs and then backed. That is the case with this.

The word on the "street" is that this stone has been mined out and what's left on the market represents rough that has been previously mined. It never was very plentiful due to the difficulty of the terrain where it is found, in one small area of Russia. It will be very scarce in the near future and represents a good investment. I know I am holding onto what I have and won't be offering anymore than what I have available in my store now. The more choice the stone, the more rare and valuable it will become. Like Ammolite, Tanzanite and Paraiba Tourmaline, Charoite is a relative newcomer with a short lived, but impressive impact on the public. No stone has quite the unique look of Charoite!

This 2.25" (5.7cm) long handmade pendant is finished with a setting full of light catching texture. This is an eye catcher, with the glowing warmth of the copper and its beautiful hand applied patina setting of the swirls and texture. The 6mm bail will accommodate an appropriate chain or ribbon for this. (The necklace pictured does not come with this.)

I include with this a professional polishing cloth to keep your piece beautiful. If you haven't tried copper, yet, and a lot of people haven't because of negative and erroneous preconceived notions, this would be a great introductory piece to explore the beauty and wearabilty of copper.
