Charoite is one of the most vibrant purple stones you can find. Over the years we have bought a lot of bulk Charoite. It is a rare silicate mineral, first described in 1978 and named for the Chara River. It has been reported only from the Sakha Republic, Siberia, Russia. It is found where a syenite of the Murunskii Massif has intruded into and altered limestone deposits producing a potassium feldspar metasomatite. I began making this setting by creating two bezels of serrated sterling flat wire. The smaller setting was for the purple cultured pearl. I backed the centerpiece with 24 gauge sterling silver plate. The hanger is a 1/8 inch piece of sterling tubing, cut at an angle and then all were soldered together. Sarah chose the following beads to finish out the piece. Sterling silver, Freshwater pearls, Charoite, Swarovski, Amethyst, Czech glass, tiger tail beading wire. She finished the piece with a sterling hook and loop closure for easy installations around the neck.
