Charoite from Russia and China. Our Chinese Charoite often includes green orthoclase as well. Charoite is a stone of love, acceptance, precision, and focus.
CHAROITE

Chemical Composition:Charoite is (Ca,K,Na)3Si4O10(OH,F)·H2O) Sometimes with inclusions of quartz and manganese. Some of our Chinese Charoite wil also have inclusions of green orthoclase. Charoite may contain inclusions of the mineral tinaksite, which appears as a golden, spire-like shape running through the material.

Hardness: 5-6

Location: Russia has been the only location where Charoite has been found, until just recently. Charoite is a relatively "new" mineral, and has only been exported from Russia and sold since 1978. Charoite has now been discovered and recently mined in China as well. We carry both Russian and Chinese Charoite. Russian Charoite tends to have a richer, deeper color. The Chinese Chaoite tends be a lighter lavender color, and often contains green orthoclase as well.

Metaphysical Properties: Loving spiritual emotion, acceptance. Precision, focus.

Corresponding Astrological Sign: Sagittarius and Scorpio.

Corresponding Chakra: Synthesis of the heart and crown chakras.
