Charoite is an incredible stone of vibrant purples, violets, and lavenders with an almost tangible movement of energy flowing in magnificent swirls. It is rare and complex, one of nature’s most beautiful natural stones.
Discovered in the 1940s, Charoite was unknown to the outside world until 1978. Its name is derived from the Chara (or Charo) River in eastern Siberia, Russia, the only site in the world where it is found. The word “Chary” in Russian means “magic” or “charms.” The term “Charoite Jade” is a trade name for Charoite used in various applications as a decorative stone
Charoite is a complex silicate containing elements such as potassium, sodium, calcium, barium, strontium, oxygen, silicon, and hydrogen. Its distinctive color, ranging from bright lavender and violet to deep purple, together with its unusual patterns, makes it so unusual it is often mistaken for a synthetic.
Charoite is believed by some to be a support crystal for the sick or elderly, transmuting illness and disease into wellness.
