Charoite is a silicate mineral that is a rare, bright, firey purple with white, gray and black veining.
The Russians first discovered Charoite in 1947, but it didn't really appear on the lapidary market until the late 1970's.
Charoite is found in only one location, the Sakha Republic in Siberia, Russia. It is named after the nearby Chara River.
Metaphysical Properties of Charoite: Charoite is said to help you recognize your true path. It is also said to help you separate your issues from other's issues. Put Charoite beneath your pillow, as it is said to dispel bad dreams and negativity.
