Charoite Gemstone Tantalizingly Purple
- Rich purple coloured crystal
- Hand crafted in sterling silver
- Stylish and comfortably light
- Competitively priced
Ladies pendant featuring a rich purple coloured charoite gemstone. Believed to have been named after the Chara River in Eastern Siberia close to where this rock forming mineral is found, this sought after stone was only introduced to the rock and mineral community outside of Russia in 1978. Used primarily for lapidary purposes, charoite is still not widely exported and fine grade material can be difficult to find.
The carefully chosen cabochon sits in a hand-made sterling silver setting and comes complete with a colourful pouch that will help keep the gemstone safe and minimse any build up of tarnish on the sterling silver.
