There’s something about Siberia and rare gemstones of beautiful greens or purples. Charoite is one of the few naturally purple gemstones, extremely rare and one of the more beautiful gemstones on the market. However, it’s almost mined out.

The world outside of Siberia learned about the CHAROITE deposit “Sirenevyi Kamen” in the 70’s, but geologists Vera P Rogova and Yuri G Rogov reportedly discovered the mine in the 1940’s or 1950s. Charoite is located in the Murun Mountains in Yakutia, Russia. This is the only location in the world where this material exists and unfortunately, the material is almost mined out. Grade A material was mined out almost immediately.

Charoite has a glorious purple color with the unique pattern of swirls, feathers and
needles. It may contain patches or stars of black (Aegerine), orange (Tinaksite) and
transparent crystals (Microcline Feldspar). This material is actually a silicate of
potassium, calcium and sodium [K(Na, Ca)11(Ba, Sr)Si18O46 (OH, F)-nH2O]. It ranks
5.0 on the Moh’s Scale of Hardness. Its density is approximately 2.5 - 2.8.

Charoite is said to be THE STONE OF THE SPIRIT. Wearing Charoite is believed to enhance self-esteem, accelerate spiritual growth, soothe hot emotions, and give a feeling of security. Charoite aids in the treatment of general aches and pains, liver ailments, and blood pressure. Charoite changes loneliness to love and warms the heart, it shows you the way through your fears to perfect peace.

The material used in THIS NECKLACE (10mm smooth round beads) is from the last of the [C] Grade and the last of the material with these deep purple shades. The next shipment I received is pale lavender and I’m disappointed. I’m so disappointed I don’t know what I’m going to do with it.

The necklace is 18 ½ inches, including 14kt gold plated, lobster claw clasp.

I’m so glad I got some of the beautiful Charoite before it’s all gone. You should probably take this opportunity to get yours.

I am only charging my supplier’s wholesale price for these stones, because I’ve realized this is from the last lot of the “good” stuff and I have my own Charoite necklace. I’m never going to be able to get the beautiful material again and I want to share it with at least one more person (I’ve sold other pieces at markets).
