Gorgeous intense purple Charoite cabochon ready for your most amazing jewellery designs♥
It has such a beautiful pattern and Schiller effect and a small part that is translucent to almost transparent.
Beautiful polish on this cabochon that is more of a slice because it does not have the typical dome of a cabochon.
Discovered in Russia in 1978 in the Murun mountains in Yakutia.
This the only known location for this rare mineral. The name Charoite is derived from the Charo River which is near where it was found.
The colors range from bright lavender, violet and lilac to dark purple with swirling patterns of black Augite, transparent crystals of microcline feldspar, and/or orange Tinaksite.
Charoite is so unusual looking with its chatoyancy and strange looking spirally strands of fibrous material that it is often mistaken for a synthetic.
It is used extensively in jewelry and as an ornamental stone carved into boxes, bookends and vases. It ranges from 5 - 6 on the Mohs scale.
This cabochon was cut in our workshop from a small piece of rough.
