Eight-strand necklace of faceted amethyst, rare charoite, and phosphosiderite with silver embellishments. It is 22" to 24" and is versatile for casual, business, and evening outfits.
Amethyst is purple quartz, esteemed for its regal beauty by royalty throughout history. Found in Siberia, Sri Lanka, Brazil, and Asia.
Charoite is an extremely rare stone found only in Siberia, Russia – and there, only in the Republic of Sakha (also known as Yakutia). It is a silicate mineral, meaning that it is composed of silicate groups containing silicon and oxygen atoms.
Phosphosiderite is a relatively rare mineral that was first discovered in 1858 and named in 1890. Its name comes from the Latin 'phospho' meaning 'from phosphate' and siderite from the Latin 'sídēros' meaning 'iron'.
Phosphosiderite can only be found in Germany, USA, Portugal, Chile, and Argentina.
