Love that Mystery Stone

About this design:

The pendant inspired this design. I found it and the other purple beads in a beadshop in Black Mountain, NC. Have no idea what the stone is - but just loved the color. Any ideas anyone? Found the Green Garnets at my LBS. Knew the Garnets where just what was needed to show off the pendant.
