Charoite looks pretty somber in its natural state and that is probably why it wasn't discovered until the 1940's when a railway was constructed in the Kodar Mountains. That is the only place where this mineral comes from. It is named after the Chara River which flows from a lake in the Kodars. It is intensely purple.
This crystal is associated with clairaudience and the ability to hear one's guides and angels speak. Wear it or hold it when you are at a crossroads and need wisdom in making the right choice.
