Charoite Cabochons

Charoite is a silicate mineral that is a rare, bright, firey purple with white, gray and black veining. 

Charoite cabochons have a swirling pattern of interlocking crystals.  The designer cabochons are fibrous and may have some translucency. Some Charoite has a very strong chatoyancy.

It formed from alteration of limestones by the close presences of an alkali-rich nephline syenite intrusion. The heat, pressure and more importantly, the infusion of unique chemicals into the rock is responsible for the transformations into Charoite.

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. This part of Russia is known for its forbidding climate and terrain and as a traditional place of exile for political prisoners.

It is named after the nearby Chara River. 

Though sometimes difficult to cut, Charoite cabochons have a hardness of 5-6, and take a beautiful polish.

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.
