Charoite has a translucent to pearly luster. This rare silicate mineral has a unique swirling, fibrous appearance and a translucent lavender to intense lilac purple color. Charoite has a Moh’s hardness of 5-6. It is massive in nature. This mineral is only found in one location: Along the Chary River at Aldan in Russia. First discovered in 1940, Charoite is a comparatively “new” mineral. The location has a unique combination of physical conditions and the presence of chemically unique limestone, that was subjected to a chemically unique liquid intrusion.

Charoite is said to promote a highly-individualized growth towards service with an energy that is simultaneously grounding and balancing.
