Charoite Jewellery

Charoite is formed by the process of Contact Metamorphism as pre existing limestone and marble rocks are altered by intense heat and pressure. Charoite is a complex silicate mineral which has a vibrant purple colour and is found almost exclusively around the Chara River in Siberia, from which it gets its name. It is a recently discovered gemstone, first located in 1978.

It has a dull lustre and exhibits fibrous striations and patches of darker and lighter material.

Charoite is thought to increase inner strength to overcome adversity ,  provide energy and improve self esteem .
