Charoite 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 translucent lavender to purple in color with a pearly luster. It has an unusual swirling, fibrous appearance, sometimes chatoyant, and that, along with its intense color, can lead many to believe at first that it is synthetic or enhanced artificially.
This awesome pendant encompasses the wonderful qualities of gem quality Charoite. The Charoite alone is 3 inches by 1 3/4 inches. It is enhanced with a bit of amethyst and set in 14k marked gold. The overall dimensions of the pendant is almost 4 3/4 inches long and 25/8 inches wide.
The pendant is 107.9 grams.
Charoite is known to have powerful healing properties.
