Charoite was discovered in Russia in 1978 in a mountain in Yakutia, near the Charo River. The beautiful stone has an array of color ranging from bright lavender, violet and lilac to dark purple with a combination of white, gray and black matrix. Its glorious purple color features a unique combination of swirls, feathers and needles. Charoite is believed to enhance confidence, accelerate spiritual growth, and increase the ability to love. Some people believe that Charoite got its name because of the impression that it gives "Chary" which in Russian means "charms" or "magic".
