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 Charoite pendant has an undeniable nobility to it from the combination of bright .925 Sterling Silver setting, the intricacy of design in the bail, and the intense purple color. The naturally fibrous, swirling patterns found in this stone are a great example of the effect that Charoite is famous for, giving this pendant a mysterious charm. Perfect for formal occasions, this pendant is guaranteed to draw every eye.
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.
