Charoite is a rare violet to deep lilac colored silicate mineral that is strictly massive in nature and has only been reported from the Sakha Republic, Siberia, Russia. Charoite has an unusual swirling/fibrous appearance that occasionally shows chatoyancy; that paired with its intense coloring has lead some to think it is synthetic although it is entirely natural.
This particular pendant truly is a striking example of Charoite with it's celestial swirling patterns and vibrant variation from light, translucent to dark, intense purple. Craftsmanship can be seen in every facet of this pendant including the intricately designed bail to the exact shaping of the gemstone set in the bright Sterling Silver. Casual or formal, any outfit would benefit from this incredible pendant.
Charoite is a uniquely active stone, being considered most prominently as a stone of transformation. Through balancing the Crown Chakra it assists in overcoming alienation or frustration, through the Heart Chakra it is said to stimulate unconditional love. Charoite is believed to be a great aid in facilitating acceptance.
