Do You Know This Stone?

Hm, I think I need some help.  I bought this stone a long time ago and I can't remember what the name is or even where I bought it.  I know that it is a real stone and not man made.  It has areas of purple, yellow/gold, and some light green.  Any thoughts?  It was a perfect match for the gold brass and purple amethyst stones I added here.

Enlightenment Lotus Snake Skin Agate Bracelet

Wishbone Labradorite Sterling Necklace

Happy Buddha Ocean Jasper Necklace

Sunset Turquoise Sterling Necklace

These items are being listed today.  I'm moving in slow motion since the weather has been wonderful here :)


  1. Can't help with the stone but love the pieces!

  2. looks like it might be charoite?

  3. By golly, you're right! Lorelei, you have made my day :)

  4. Such rockin stones, just gorgeous...I love, love the big labradorite and that turquoise is awesome. Great pieces my friend!

  5. I'm glad you could find out what the stone was...cuz I don't know but I do love that bracelet!

  6. Could that be from Dakota Stone in Minneapolis? They do very nice work of mixing and dyeing turquoise.I love your work. I am a larger woman and the chunkiness really appeals to me.

    My daughter and I do repurposed jewelry and a few other things thrown in there. We have been making jewelry for about fifteen years together and gone through a lot of phases. Stop by our blog, if you want...

  7. Yup, charoite! Somewhere in the back of my head I think I remember it's found near Siberia? I could be wrong.

    I love what you did with it!
