Facts About Charoite
Charoite, a precious gemstone, is lavender to dark purple in colour with a pearly luster. Its colour is bright and intense with an unusual violet swirling, fibrous appearance, sometimes chatoyant.
Charoite is a rare silicate material. Its name is derived from the Chara River at the Murunskii Massif in eastern Siberia, Russia, the only site in the world where it is found. The word “Chary” in Russian means “magic” or “charms.” A Massif is an unusual geological formation, of which there are few worldwide. The rarity of Massifs and the uncommon geological events that occurred at the Murunski Massif make Charoite a precious and valuable gemstone.
