POLISHED CHAROITE

Charoite is a rare, translucent lavender to purple mineral that is strictly massive (it does not form individual crystals) in nature. It is found in only one single area: in the Sakha Republic in Siberia. The stone has an unusual swirling, fibrous appearance and is sometimes chatoyant (cat’s eye effect). Its appearance along with its rich purple coloration has led many to falsely assume that it is synthetic. In its rough form it’s fairly unattractive, and its beauty isn’t apparent until the stone is polished.
