Charoite: February

  Each month, I will post about my favourite crystals and their properties. 

  1. Physical healing: Charoite is believed to have properties that can help with physical healing. It is said to strengthen the immune system, help with insomnia, and reduce stress and anxiety.

  2. Emotional healing: Charoite is thought to help with emotional healing by calming the mind and reducing negative emotions such as fear and anger. It is believed to be a helpful stone for those who suffer from anxiety, depression, or other emotional issues.

  3. Spiritual healing: Charoite is said to be a powerful spiritual stone that can help with spiritual healing. It is believed to open the third eye chakra and enhance intuition and spiritual awareness.

  4. Chakra balancing: Charoite is thought to be a helpful stone for balancing the chakras. It is believed to be particularly effective in opening and balancing the crown chakra, which is associated with spiritual connection and higher consciousness.

  5. Placed near the heart, the crystal helps unconditional love grow. Connected to the crown and heart chakra it can be used to help meditation.


Charoite is a relatively new gemstone that was discovered in the late 1940s in the Chara River area in Russia. It was first described in 1978 by the Russian Mineralogist Yakovlev, who named it after the Chara River.

The Chara River area is located in the Sakha Republic, a region of eastern Russia known for its extreme climate and remote location. The area is characterized by rugged mountains and deep valleys, and it is home to a variety of minerals and gemstones, including charoite.

Charoite is a purple-colored stone that is composed primarily of the mineral complex of potassium, sodium, calcium, barium, strontium, and silicon. It is known for its unique and striking appearance, which features swirling patterns of lavender, violet, and white, often with black veining.

Because of its beauty and rarity, charoite quickly gained popularity among gemstone enthusiasts and jewelry designers. Today, it is widely used in jewelry, decorative objects, and other applications.

Despite its relatively recent discovery, charoite has already gained a significant following among gemstone collectors and enthusiasts. It is highly prized for its beauty and rarity, as well as its association with the remote and rugged region of Russia where it was first discovered.
