Rare, natural trapezoid shaped Siberian Charoite cabochon set in scroll-work setting. Nice addition to your Charoite jewelery collection.
Charoite looks pretty somber in its natural state and that is probably why it wasn't discovered until the 1940's when a railway was constructed in the Kodar Mountains. That is the only place where this mineral comes from. It is named after the Chara River which flows from a lake in the Kodars. It is intensely purple.
This Charoite pendant measures 7/8 inch wide by 1-1/2 inches long from top of bail.
Charoite is associated with clairaudience and the ability to hear one's guides and angels speak. Wear it or hold it when you are at a crossroads and need wisdom in making the right choice.
