Charoite is a rare, translucent lavender to purple mineral that is strictly massive (does not form individual crystals) in nature. It is found in only one single area in the Sakha Republic in Siberia. The mineral has an unusual swirling, fibrous appearance and is sometimes chatoyant (cat’s eye effect). It’s appearance, along with its rich, purple coloration, has led many to assume that it’s a synthetic mineral. In its rough form it’s fairly unattractive, and it’s beauty isn’t apparent until polished. So we took that polished material and now offer you with magnificent pendants that are sure to be your new favorite piece of jewelry.
