Charoite Block Pendant

$ 75.00
This is an amazing piece of charoite. I absolutely love this stone and it can be so hard to find, especially in such a fine quality like this. In my opinion, if you're interested in charoite, go for the good stuff. This piece has rich, saturated color that's a lot darker than you would see in charoite of a lower quality and it's 100% natural. It's filled with pearlescent swirls of abstract design on both sides and has a smooth, polished surface. This rare, Russian mineral is suspended in a thick, sterling silver wire which has been oxidized to bring out its rope like texture. The pendant measures 1 1/4" in width and 2" in length which includes the silver bail. In this listing you may choose to purchase the pendant alone or add the chain shown in the pictures. This is an oxidized, sterling silver chain with diamond, cut bars spaced out along the chain. The chain length is 30". 

History and Metaphysical Properties:

Charoite is a rare mineral, found in only one location - along the Chary River at Aldan in Russia. This part of Russia is known for its forbidding climate and terrain and as a traditional place of exile for political prisoners.
Why charoite has not been found in other locations is not fully understood. But it is probably due to a combination of a chemically unique limestone reacting with a chemically unique intrusion and subjected to unique physical conditions. Though reportedly discovered in the 1940s, it was not known to the outside world until its description in 1978. It is said to be opaque and unattractive when found in the field, a fact that may have contributed to its late recognition.

Metaphysically, Charoite transmutes negativity and cleanses the aura. It facilitates the release of fear and dissolution of negative energies encountered in the process of aligning with your soul's purpose. Charoite can be used to overcome obsessions and compulsions. It grounds the spiritual self, opening and balancing the crown chakra. Charoite has been used to regulate blood pressure and to assist with deep sleep and powerful dreams.
