If you ever wonder what is a dream stone pendant, than just take a look at this beauty's pattern. Twisting turning, layering, swirly crystal with the Royal purple color. It's a genuine Charoite gemstone from the only place on earth where found, Siberia Russia. Charoite discovered as a unique mineral back in 1940, but wasn't introduced to the world till 1978, than it became one of the most sought after jewelry material. Named after the river Charo, where this gem prospected. Unfortunately the late news says, the supply is depleting, not much left to mine.
It's a very complex mineral, takes a long list to say all what's composing it. A relatively soft stone, and not easy to work with, but the result worth the effort.
The raw stone from a supplier by the pound. The various pieces of chunks, selected for quality, than cut and designed to pendants. Polished on diamond lapidary wheels up to 50.000 grit smoothness and shine. It's a real joy to see how the color and pattern comes alive with each step of the polishing method.
