Charoite ~ The Magic and Mystery

Have you ever heard of Charoite? If you haven't, you should know about its powerful energy!

Charoite was recently discovered in Russia in 1978 in the Murun mountains in Yakutia, to date, this the only known location for this rare mineral. The name Charoite is derived from the Chary River which is near where it was found. Chary, meaning charm or magic.

Charoite is a very rare, amazing and beautiful stone. The colors range from light to medium lavender, deep violet and lilac, to dark purples, with swirling patterns of Black Augite, transparent crystals of microcline Feldspar, orange and sometimes swirls of deep brown. The stone's quality varies. The darker stone is the most sought after and is the most expensive. Other Charoite stones may appear much lighter in color. Pale violet and  lavender with light green, creamy yellow and brown prismatic tinaksite crystals.

This is one of my favorite gemstones. Charoite is known as a 'Stone of Transformation' as well as a "Stone of Power". In particular, it transforms negative emotions such as anger and fear into positive feelings and aids in coping with enormous change on a spiritual level. As a part of the transformation process it allows release of those negative emotions, so one can change and move forward. Charoite is a stone of strength, power, courage and wisdom, allowing negative energies to dissipate and spiritual awareness and positive energy to manifest naturally. If you are stuck in a situation where change needs to take place, a relationship that has halted your spiritual growth, Charoite is the stone for you.Charoite is also known as a "Stone of Inspiration", bringing enhanced creativity, spiritual growth and showing new possibilities in even the oldest situations. This is a stone that allows one to see clearly which brings with it enhanced self-esteem and helps release one from many victimizations. It helps to reduce stress, anxiety and worry and brings about a relaxed attitude. It overcomes compulsions and obsessions and opens and balances the crown chakra. Charoite is known to enhance courage, inner strength and assertiveness.The stone transmutes negative energy into healing and converts disease into wellness. A powerful healing stone, Charoite helps control blood pressure, liver damage, alleviates cramps, aches, pains, and helps greatly with insomnia. It also helps with autism and bipolar conditions, relaxing and calming the mind. An amazing stone to calm panic attacks. Just holding a Charoite stone can help to relax you and balance energy.

Its strange how Charoite is a more recent discovery. There is speculation that the stone was picked up and thrown back to the ground in the 1940's, but there was no verified discovery until 1978. The stone lacks appeal in its natural form, probably the reason why no was interested in it back in the 1940's if in fact is was just laying around on the ground. Evidently, Russia makes it difficult to get your hands on this magical mineral and have strict guidelines regarding its departure from the country. Not a lot of people know about Charoite and since its only location to date is in Russia (Charoite has not been found anywhere else in the world), you can bet that Charoite is one of the rarest gemstones on earth.

How we choose our crystals and gemstones ~ I am very particular about the crystals and gemstones I offer here at White Magick Alchemy.  Each piece is hand selected, meaning that I look at each piece, whether it be a sphere, wand, standing point, tumbled or raw stone/specimen, and choose only the finest pieces to offer to you. I don't order these from some online vendor who sends me a box of gemstones I've never laid my eyes on or my hands on. Every piece has been in my hands and carefully examined before I decide if the crystal gemstone is listed for sale.

White Magick loves Charoite! And I am constantly searching for more. But this is not an easy task as I need to see and hold each piece beforehand. Currently I have Charoite Wands, Charoite Tumbled Gemstones, Charoite Spheres and Charoite Palm Stones available.
