This Charoite slab is a rare Russian stone. It is a beautiful violet color with some greenish Feldspar imbedded within the Charoite stone. With this slab you have the potential to make absolutely gorgeous jewelry with purple Charoite to be further enhanced by the light green/white Feldspar or just make your jewelry to include only the mesmerizing purple swirls of the Charoite. The purple color in this stone is not treated in any way. It is in its natural state. The wavy pattern you see in the face is highly chatoyant (like tiger eye) and light appears to dance across the surface when you move it. Charoite can come in numerous shades of purple and this is truly one of the most beautiful shades available. The light green/white Feldspar imbedded within this stone enhances the beautiful deep violet color.
As with all stones, natural fissures can be present. These fissures should be inspected prior to cutting, trimming, and shaping. Stabilizing fissures with clear Opiticon jewelers epoxy may be considered.
Charoite comes from an area of Siberia once associated with political prisoners, it is said to be a source of comfort and a symbol of endurance in adversity.
It is said that It grants the courage to start over after repossession, overcomes job loss in an area of high unemployment, and sustains those in prison, boarding school, the hospital or in residential care. It is also a support stone for those who care for the sick or elderly and for adoptive parents to bond with children with behavioral difficulties.
Charoite is known to awaken analytical abilities and also, the capacity for keen observation. It assists in decision-making and facilitates faster responses. It imparts vigor and determination in overcoming obstacles and tackling huge piles of work.
Charoite is a stone of connection for all who work away from home, and for those who live alone with little contact with others. It provides emotional healing for those who suffer acute loneliness and alienation from life, and eases fears of ill health, pain and dying.
Charoite is helpful in stress relief, by allowing the release of stress and worry it brings about calm and restful feelings.
Folks wear Charoite to avert premonitions of disasters you cannot prevent, and to channel these powers into positive intuition
