What is the stone on this piece of jewlery I got from the dominican?

Hey my sister got me this necklass from the dominican republic. I'm always interested in gems and stuff so I want to find out what the stone is. Its pale purple and has facets and kinda looks like a diamond. My sister said she thinks it was called "cinnus" (know any gems that sound like that?) and I think its native to the dominican republic, though it might not be =p
