Piece # 134 "You're Here"
A Zoria's Creation. Krista DeSelms 2011

Sooo, today is my boyfriend's and my 6 month and I got a new shirt to wear to dinner tonight, but didn't have a necklace to go with it. So I dug through my rock collection and found this beauty. Tonight will be great! :D

Charoite cabochon wrapped in 21 guage, square Argentium Sterling Silver.

Charoite is an unusual mineral and of rare occurrence, with colors ranging from bright lavender, violet and lilac to dark purple with white, gray and black veining. It has an unusual swirling, fibrous appearance, and sometimes chatoyant. That, along with its intense color, can lead many to believe at first that it is synthetic or enhanced artificially. Charoite is named after the Charo River which is located in Aldan, Russia where Charoite is mined.

Argentium Sterling Silver is the highest quality of Sterling Silver available today and is highly tarnish resistant. Sterling Silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, Argentium is still the 92.5% silver but it replaces some of the copper with the element Germanium which gives it a higher tarnish resistance and less people are allergic to it than just normal Sterling Silver.

This and other pieces like it for sale on my website: www.Zorias.com

Yes, I do custom work.

Thanks, I love this one and wear it a lot. The night was cut short by his work calling him in, but we got to celebrate later so it's all good :)
