Charoite is a very diverse complex mineral that contains potassium, sodium, calcium, barium, strontium, oxygen, silicon, and hydrogen. It can also be found with inclusions of Quartz, Calcite, Feldspar, Manganese, and Aegirine. This stone has a monolithic formation; most commonly crystallizing in the forms of masses and aggregates but can also be found as small druzy clusters across other host minerals. Its color ranges are primarily pink to purple (from lilac to deep purple) with black, gold, white, clear, and green inclusions. Charoite is an opaque stone that contains very unique swirling patterns within it, which give off a virteous, silky lustre. It is only found in Russia, near the Chara River. Although its name seems to resemble the location, it was actually named after the Russian word “chary” meaning charms or magic, and it does in fact live up to this name.
Charoite is a stone that bridges the higher dimensions with the physical plane. It does this by linking the heart and crown to combine the high vibrations of the spiritual plane with unconditional love on the Earthly plane. This in turn, brings extremely high vibrations into the heart while sending the heart’s love and desires into higher vibrational realms. Merging the heart and crown in this manner creates an environment of unconditional love within the self. This increases one’s giving nature and opens the heart to see the connection that exists between all of us. Charoite also activates the latent inner knowledge that leads one to the path of service to the world. When in full resonation with this stone, one’s internal work easily reflects outward and becomes a part of their service to their own life path, transformation, and the world as a whole.

These insights most often appear through visions, synchronicities, and second sight.
Perception is one of the key abilities of Charoite, not only in the recognition of one’s spiritual power but also of things occuring on the physical plane.

It also stimulates analytical abilities and precision, providing scrutiny when investigating the unknown.
