This pendant features a cabochon of rich purple charoite. The stone measures 1.51 x 0.96 inches (3.84 x 2.46 cm), weighs in at 36 carats and is set in 14k rose gold wire.

Charoite is a gem that was discoved in Russia (on the Charo river) in the late 70s. It seems amazing that such a distinctive stone was discovered so recently, but apparently rough weathered stones conceal their inner beauty. Charoite is best known for its silky, chatoyant luster and occasionally incredibly rich purple color. There really is no other stone like it, especially when you have a top quality piece. It's getting harder and harder to find top-grade charoite. Most of what is coming out now appears to be a pale lavender with lots of quartz inclusions. I was very happy to rediscover a few stones which we had bought when it was a little easier to come by.

This stone is a very nice example, with a rich purple color and silky, coiled chatoyance. It is a really beautiful gem!
