Stunning chatoyant purple Charoite cabochon is bezel set in sterling silver with a textured surround in sterling silver and featuring 14kt gold and 22kt gold accents. Beautiful and rare chatoyant collector gemstone. Charoite is a rare silicate mineral with a complex chemical composition and very distinct appearance. The colors of charoite are can range from light lilac to lavender and from violet to deep purple. Most charoite gemstones exhibit several purple shades within a single specimen forming very unique patterns, often swirling, streaking or feather-like in appearance. The swirling patterns are considered a signature trait of charoite and are owed to its interlocking complex fibrous crystal structure. As in the case of this gemstone, Charoite can also exhibit a level of chatoyancy. Since it's recent introduction to the international gem trade, charoite has become increasingly popular.
