Charoite stone 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 known for Charoite formations. Once polished, it has a deep, intense purple color.
Charoite meaning: Charoite is named after the Chara River which flows from a lake in the Kodars.
Charoite metaphysical properties:
Charoite 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.
