This pendant is carved from a stunning piece of Charoite from Siberia.
The beautiful orange sprays of the mineral Tinaksite make a lovely accent in an already lovely piece!
It is an incredibly complex gemstone with black aegerine-augite crystals and greenish grey microcline felspar inclusions but the purple is the charoite itself. The swirls in it give it a chatoyant shimmer as well.
Found only in Siberia in the Chara river area the name charoite is derived from the Russian word that means ‘charms’ or ‘magic’.
This Pendant is 5.4cm high and 4cm widest.
