An elegant pendant necklace for women featuring a highly polished charoite gemstone included with the mineral aegirine. Charoite which is known for its rich purple colour can only be found in the Republic of Sakha in Russia's Far East. Believed to have been named after the Chara River in Eastern Siberia close to where this rock forming mineral is found, this popular lapidary material was only introduced to the rock and mineral community outside of Russia in 1978. Charoite is an opaque mineral with a colour like no other and this comfortably light weight pendant certainly won't disappoint.

As with all of the jewellery in our collection, this charoite pendant was crafted entirely by hand by one of a small team of artisans with whom we've been working for almost twenty years.
