Product Type: One of a kind
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 is an absolutely stunning example of Charoite, the characteristic swirling patterns that are distinctive to Charoite show a full range of light translucent purple to a purple so deep it borders on black. The Sterling Silver adds a bright quality to the pendant, emphasizing the mystifying Charoite stone. This would be a radiant piece in any wardrobe, and for special occasions this pendant would be ideal.
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.
