The pendent is 2 1/4" long and 1" a its widest point. The price is for the pendent alone. Chains are available in a variety of lengths and styles. Let me know if you need a chain and I can list one for you. Sterling Silver Spiral Collars are listed separately.

Charoite only became known in the world, just recently, and it of course was named for the location where it was discovered.

Discovered in Russia in 1978 in the Murun mountains in Yakutia, to date, this the only known location for this rare mineral. The name Charoite is derived from the Chary River which is near where it was found.

The colors range from bright lavender, violet and lilac to dark purple with swirling patterns of black Augite, transparent crystals of microcline feldspar, and/or orange Tinaksite.

Charoite has quite an unusual look, with its chatoyancy and strange looking spirally strands of fibrous material that often it is mistaken for a synthetic gemstone.

The Mongols use the stone to make decorative objects, and on special feast days they would boil the stone in tea. This tea is then consumed by all members of the family in order to strengthen family ties and protect all it's members from evil.

The charoite stone is often confused with the fairly similar sugilite, although it is the charoite's characteristic light colored inclusions that are the main difference between the two stones.

Charoite is often called a 'stone of transformation' as well as a stone of power. In particular it transforms negative emotions such as anger and fear into positive feelings, allowing one to one can change and move forward.

Charoite is also known as a stone of inspiration, bringing enhanced creativity, spiritual grown and showing new possibilities in even the oldest situations. This is a stone that allows one to see clearly which brings with it enhanced self-esteem.

Charoite is known to enhance or bring courage, inner strength or appropriate assertiveness. In the psychic realm it is used for entity release and rescue work, as well as clairvoyance and prophesy.

Silver enhances the natural properties of crystals and stones. Its energy is lunar and reflective, protecting the wearer by reflecting negative energies.
