About the stones
A fairly “new” stone, Charoite was reportedly discovered in the 1940s but was not known to most of the world until its description in 1978. It is said to be opaque and unattractive when found, a fact that may have contributed to its late recognition.
Named after the Chara River, Charoite is only found in one place, a small deposit near the Chara River, close to the small town of Aldan, in Siberia, Russia. Due to the extreme cold it can only be mined for a few months every summer, a blanket of snow covers the mine for the rest of the year.
Due to its unusual appearance its often mistaken for a synthetic gem, a forgivable assumption to make as the swirling and dappled violet to lavender patterns make it look like these patterns have been painted on, but they haven’t, this is a completely natural gemstone.
Charoite is known as the stone of transformation. It is believed to help overcome fears and is particularly useful for overcoming resistance or putting things into perspective. It bestows drive, vigour and spontaneity and is able to reduce stress and worry. It can be used to overcome compulsions and obsessions and is a very calming stone.
Tourmaline is the horoscope stone for Pisces and Gemini.
Tourmalines occur in a variety of colours ranging from magenta to teal blue. The name Tourmaline comes from Sinhalese (Sri Lanka) word tura mali, which translates as the stone of mixed colours.
Ancient legend states that tourmaline is the stone of many colours because of its travels along rainbows where it captured the rainbows' many beautiful colours.
Tourmalines are renowned for their detoxifying properties and their ability to boost the immune system.
