Artwork Description: Approx. 3.0" X 1.0". Sterling silver wrapped around a cabochon of extremely high quality charoite. Purple with brilliant chatoyant spears throughout. Chatoyancy is the quality that makes tiger eye flash when the sun hits it. The supply of this gorgeous purple stone is very limited. I was extremely fortunate to acquire this wonderful stone to make into this beautiful cabochon. Charoite is a rare silicate mineral, first described in 1978 and named for the Chara River. It has been reported only from the Sakha Republic, Yakutia, Siberia, Russia.
Charoite is called a "Stone of Transformation" and is a stone of power. In particular it transforms negative emotions such as anger and fear into positive feelings. As part of the transformation process it allows release of those negative emotions. Charoite is also a stone of inspiration, bringing enhanced creativity, spiritual growth, and showing new possibilities even in old situations. This is a stone that allows us to see clearly which brings with it enhanced self-esteem and helps release one from victimization. Charoite can enhance or bring courage, inner strength, and appropriate assertiveness. In the psychic realm, charoite is used for entity release or rescue work, clairvoyance, and prophesy. Physically, charoite is helpful for speeding up healing of all kinds, headaches, liver problems, alcohol detoxification, cramps, heart problems, eye problems, and nerves.
