According to Wikipedia, "Charoite is a rare silicate mineral named for the Chara River in Siberia, Russia the only reported place it is found. Through reportedly discovered in the 1940's, it was not known to the outside world until 1978."

We don't often think of purple being a southwest color, but it was from the pinnacle of Pikes Peak that Katharine Lee Bates wrote:

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

Growing up at the foot of that mountain I can say, not only Pikes Peak but much of the Great Continental Divide has beautiful shades of purple, blue and creams much like the Charoite we have used for this piece.

For this necklace we have paired the sparkling beauty of tiny multi shaded faceted amethyst with charoite rondelle and barrel beads and added large 10mm faceted, white, pink and lavender amethyst beads and a dish of purple spiny oyster. Then just for an extra splash of color and texture we added large stamped sterling beads.
