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.

I only discovered Charoite recently and found it to be an amazing stone with a translucent lavender to dark purple color with pearly swirls of cream running through it.
