Healing Properties of Charoite

Spiritual: Charoite is a mighty stone for transformation and transition; bringing us courage, strength, and resilience. It is both grounding and uplifting, idealistic and practical. It teaches us that we are here to do great things with our lives – to be of service in our own unique way and to spread Light to others. Charoite invites us to love more and to show that love in all we do. Charoite has a very romantic energy, which is directly linked to our spiritual life, encouraging us to blissfully dance with the Divine. It activates our psychic abilities and healing powers, and clears away negative energy replacing it with the pure power of unconditional love. Charoite is attuned to the Root, Solar Plexus, Heart, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Scorpio, Sagittarius. It is connected to the element of Wind and vibrates to the number 7.

Emotional: Charoite has a very relaxing energy, helping us to let go of stress and worry. It whispers that we are exactly where we are meant to be. During difficult times, Charoite reminds us that this is merely a “season” of our life, meant to teach us something important so that we can become the person we are meant to be. Sometimes we resist the path we are meant to follow, for a variety of reasons. Charoite helps us to gently accept that when we follow our true path, it will lead to peace and happiness. No one can choose our path for us, it is ultimately a sweet agreement between us and the Divine. Charoite helps us to let go of other people’s perceptions and influences, so we can stand on our own. Charoite helps us to let go of relationships that no longer serve us and to empower and renew relationships that bring Light into our lives. Charite is a fairy-tale stone, showing us the way to our own “happily ever after.”

Mental: Charoite celebrates independent thinking and proactive actions. Charoite reminds us that all situations are either inside our control, and thus able to be successful resolved, or outside of our control, and therefore not worth our time and energy. If something is outside of our control, but still of great interest, then Charoite encourages us to be more thoughtful and find the part of the situation that IS in our control. How can we change our small part in a large problem? How can we create positive long-lasting change? We might not be able to solve every problem, but Charoite teaches us that we CAN solve, or at least positively affect, any problem we set our minds to.

Physical: Charoite is said to help calm the nervous system, particularly when the heart is affected. It is often used by metaphysical healers for treating sleep disorders and for general strengthening of the physical body and its energy fields. It is also believe to be helpful for anyone on the autistic spectrum.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Mineral Family: Charoite is a rare Silicate mineral. Silicate minerals form the largest family of minerals, including more than 25% of all known minerals and 40% of all common minerals. In addition to being a major part of the Earth’s crust, Silicate minerals have also been found on the moon and in meteorites. Silicates are minerals which contain the elements Silicon (a light gray shiny metal) and Oxygen (a colorless gas). Together, these two elements form a tetrahedron – a shape similar to a pyramid – with a Silicon atom in the center and Oxygen atoms at each of the four corners. These tetrahedra connect with other chemical structures, in six different ways, to form various minerals and rocks. There are six main groups of Silicate minerals, and these main groups are further subdivided into secondary subdivisions, such as Quartz and Feldspar. Charoite belongs to the Feldspathoid group, which includes minerals rich in Sodium and Potassium.

Formation: Charoite is created when a Synite (a type of igneous rock) intrudes into Limestone (a sedimentary rock).

Mining: In its natural raw state, Charoite didn’t gather much attention on the international market. It wasn’t until 1978 that polished forms became available. Since then, demand has been high and it has been actively mined. 

Enhancements: All Charoites are completely natural, enhanced only by cutting, polishing, and tumbling.

History of Charoite

Charoite is a relatively “new” healing stone whose properties have only recently begun to be explored. As a result, it was not included in early lapidaries, texts which describe gemstones and their powers.

Charoite was first documented during the 1940s, while the USSR was building the trans-Siberian railroad through the Kodar Mountains, in the satellite state of the Sakha Republic. While digging a tunnel, it was discovered that a relatively plain-looking stone from the mountain would become a vivid purple when polished. In 1978, this stone was named Charoite, in honor of the Chara River that runs nearby.

Ethically Sourced Charoite


The Miners sell to a rough Gem Dealer/Exporter.

The Exporter sells to a Lapidary.

The Lapidary sells directly to Moonrise Crystals.

Moonrise Crystals sells directly to you.






The Supply Chain

The Supply Chain is clean and relatively short.

The Mine and the Lapidary are located in different countries, with one middleman involved. 



The Mine

This Charoite comes from a small mine in the Sakha Republic, Eastern Siberia, Russia.

It was most likely extracted by hand, as it is difficult to get heavy machinery into that region.  

The mining likely cause only minor environmental damage.

The Lapidary

This Charoite was polished in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Lapidary is a family-owned business, founded by father and passed on to his sons.

Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly.

The Lapidary is also the direct-importer & sells primarily at large gem shows.

Sourcing Relationship

I have been doing business with this source since the earliest days in my business.  They are a major tumbling company and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source.  The owners visit many small and industrial-size mines personally.  For artisanal-mined deposits in sub-Sahara Africa, the owners work with Gem Dealers who deal directly with the part-time miners.  The majority of these Gem Dealers are women.

Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin.  For those that aren’t, I have to ask the owners personally.  They tend to get impatient with questions.  As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them.  However, they remain my preferred source for most of sub-Sahara Africa.

    Thank you so much for my beautiful Purple Jade and Charoite Crystals. I am so very happy with them and I know you chose two very special stones.

  2. Samantha S. (North Carolina)

    I wasn’t even looking for a Charoite, but was immediately drawn to it. Then, I read that it was a good crystal for Scorpios & understood. The Charoite is a beautiful crystal & I’m glad I added it to my collection. I also loved the packaging & the surprise of the tea bag & pen!

  3. Gina Marie B. (Hawaii)

    The crystals arrived and are beautiful as always! I adore them and am working on using them to my advantage. They have definitely aided the healing process for me, and I am looking forward to exploring and understanding them more each day.

  4. Jamie A. (New Jersey)

    The stones you picked and sent are beautiful. Thank you so much.

  5. Whitney W. (Michigan)

    I’ve been wanting a piece of Charoite for a long time. I’m glad that I bought one here. The quality is great for the price and it looks very similar to the ones pictured in the listing. I’m glad that I can trust this shop and not end up with a little ugly piece that looks nothing like what I had expected. AND! I got a pen with my order. Purple ink. I know people give pens away all the time, especially businesses, but I’ve never gotten one before. I don’t steal them, either. I buy pens. I feel like a temp buying supplies. Yawn. But, pen! Also, tea! It smells so lovely and I really appreciate that the ingredients were included because I could’ve been allergic to any of them. I’m not, but still. It was very thoughtful.

  6. Estelle D. (France)

    I haven’t had time to meditate with my charoite yet, but when I unpacked it and held it in my hand and before my eyes to admire it and make contact with it, I could feel its deep quiet soothing energy. Another beautiful choice from the awesome Julie.

  7. Estelle D. (France)

    I received the stones yesterday evening, wow they are beautiful. I love your stones, they arrive very clean and energy radiating. I can’t wait to work with them. They are all wonderful, I could feel their particular vibes as I held them in turn. And thank you for the gift pen, and for taking such great care in packing them You are amazing
