This pendant features a rare crystal of light purple clinozoisite. The stone measures 1.01 x 0.52 inches (25.7 x 13.3 mm) and is set in solid 14k rose gold wire. Clinozoisite is (as you might expect) closely related to the mineral zoisite, both of which have the same chemical formula though a slightly different crystal structure. Zoisite is a gemstone which was made famous by one of its varieties: Tanzanite, the stunningly beautiful and popular blue-violet gem found exclusively in Tanzania. However, Pakistan has also produced gem-quality crystals of zoisite and clinozoisite.
Most are yellow to green, but some are a beautiful lavender-pink color. I've only seen these once, and I bought the very best from the parcel. This crystal was the best of the best, with the nicest color and crystal form. It also shows a multitude of fine needle inclusions which give it an extra sparkling beauty.
