About the stone
Charoite is a relatively new stone on the market, but only on a commercial level. Since ancient times, charoite minerals have been used for healing and ceremonial purposes. Mongols were known to create ornamental objects from charoite and they ceremoniously boiled stones into tea, which would be consumed with the belief that it could strengthen the ties of family and community, while providing all members with protection from evil spirits.
Charoite was discovered in Russia in 1978 in the Murun Mountains in Yakutia. Now it is the only known location for this rare mineral. The name Charoite is derived from the Charo River which is near where it was found. Charoite is so unusual looking with its chatoyancy and strange looking spirally strands of fibrous material that it is often mistaken for a synthetic.
Charoite is a stone of acceptance and insight teaching and guiding on how to live in the "Now". It is a stone of transformation and is used to overcome fears. Charoite provides healing on all levels - physical, emotional and spiritual. Charoite removes/transmutes negativity and overcomes obsessive/compulsive behaviors, helps to face and release fear. Lifts energy when the body is exhausted, regulates blood pressure, assists with deep sleep and powerful dreams.
