Gentle swirls of lavender and lilac, punctuated with creams, whites and black, are so full of life and contrast, that many mistake Charoite to be synthetic or enhanced. The fact that this incredible crystal is 100% completely NATURAL is just another testament to its magic. I found these gorgeous pieces at the Tucson Gem shows this year and fell madly in love; Charoite is not easy to find, especially such majestic spheres as this (much of this stone is made into pendants and cabachons for jewelry), and what is available is lower grade. These are high grade charoite spheres, rarely found this large, incredible and potent mineral magic for your crystal work, chakra sets, crystal grids, uplifting the vibration in a work/studio space, and energy work.
Charoite’s name comes from the only location in the world where it was found, the Charo River, in eastern Siberia, Russia. It’s an incredibly rare stone that was discovered in the 1940s, but not released to the rest of the world until 1978. It’s still very rare today, though it is gaining more and more popularity due to its metaphysical properties and how timely they are to our modern day spiritual, emotional, and political needs. Sometimes this stone goes by the trade name “Charoite Jade.”
Charoite is a dream stone; it’s a highly intuitive stone, enhancing psychic gifts and encouraging the opening of the crown chakra. Charoite also bridges the heart chakra, tapping us into wells of universal and unconditional love. The stone is completely natural, varying shades of purple, some with a silky sheen, with hints of black and white at times. This crystal is one of acceptance: letting go of that which no longer serves us, while at the same time embracing our calling, our higher needs and purpose. Because it’s a highly spiritual stone that also works with the heart chakra, Charoite helps us heal our deepest traumas and emotional wounds, in the spirit of finding our true selves, our higher calling, and tapping into our abilities.
Charoite is a soothing, calming stone, aiding in restful sleep and supporting those with sleep challenges, such as insomnia, sleep walking/talking, etc. (of course crystal therapy is not a replacement for seeing a doctor, and nothing in these listings is to be considered medical advice). Charoite is a wonderful stone for healers and caregivers of all kinds, from lightworkers and therapists, to teachers, mothers, and those who care for the elderly. This “Soul Stone” helps us navigate the waters of inevitable change gracefully, while fully accepting what is, and letting go what no longer serves us.
This listing is for the exactly Charoite sphere pictured. It is simply HUGE! It measures just under 2.75 inches in diameter. This is one of the single largest Charoite spheres I have ever seen, or that my supplier has ever found. Not many are this large and available on the market. Enjoy this amazing treasure!
Spheres are powerful and potent Earth medicine to have around, especially for those of you not able to work with your crystals as much as you want to or need to. They’re very good for family living spaces or as home or office decor. The reason for this is their shape. Circles and spheres hold heavy symbolism in many cultures and civilizations around the world and throughout time. They represent infinite energy, and indeed, this is what they radiate. When a gemstone is carved into a sphere, it sends its properties out equally in all directions, through every space, into every nook and cranny with minimal effort from you. Of course, our crystals like it when we work with them and they want to be of service; but spheres will sit quietly, radiating their awesomeness into your space all on their own. Just give them a stand, keep them dust-free, smudge them to clear them every once in a while, and enjoy their beauty!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered. 🙂
