Charoite is a potassium, barium, calcium strontium, hydrogen silicate mineral. It is a rare purple stone with a pearly lustre and comes in colours from violet to darker purple with swirls on the surface. The meaning of Charoite is transformation.
The Stone of Transformation & Unconditional Love Named after the Chara River that runs through the Sakha Republic of Siberia, Charoite shimmers with rare splendour. This gem can only be found in one place in the entire world and it was only recently discovered in the 1940’s. Pieces of this precious purple gem are few and far between and as it was discovered at a unique geological formation known as a Mastiff, the odds are that big deposits of this stone may not be seen again. While it was found by the Chara River, the name may also be a nod to the Russian word for magic charm, which is exactly what you get when you hold tight to a piece of Charoite.
Ranging from lilac wine to soft pink and darker purple hues, Charoite also boasts shades of quartz and manganese which weave in black and white to the colour scheme. It comes from fibrous crystal masses which also helps bring about that swirling colour scheme and gives it a textured appearance.

For those who are dealing with any kind of loss in their life, Charoite will pick you up, dust you off, and invite you to find the internal power to put a different spin on things. It’s a great stone for decision making as it brings clarity and it helps you to make choices based on love rather than being bogged down in fear.

Charoite is big spiritual energy. This potent purple gem can cleanse your higher chakras – removing blockages from the heart chakra, the third eye chakra, and the crown chakra too. By cleansing the aura and opening our upper chakras, puts us in the perfect place to receive uplifting positive energies. Even beyond the open-hearted love, the wisdom of the third eye, and the universal connection from the crown, Charoite also helps us to adjust to a higher frequency which can expand our consciousness and even awaken a desire in us to ‘be at service’ to the world at large. Charoite connects us to individuals, dualities, and Mother Gaia.
Zodiac Birthstone This is a stone that leads us towards the winter solstice – with its deep purple light bringing a sense of mysticism and the celebration of endings and beginnings, of death and dreaming, and the rebirth of the sun. In the longest darkest hour of the night, we have space and time for introspection and understanding ourselves even deeper. While not directly related to any birth sign or the zodiac signs in the traditional sense, Charoite works in beautiful harmony with those born under the sign of Scorpio and Sagittarius.
Scorpios are determined, ambitious, honest, and loyal. But they can also be jealous and secretive too. Charoite can shake out these emotions that keep Scorpios ready with a sting in their tail, instead, it encourages them to look to the light, open their hearts, and learn to trust in others and the universe at large. It encourages philosophical thinking, deep restful sleep to counteract and balance the overworked ambition and backs up Scorpios natural bravery too.
Sagittarians too can benefit from bringing Charoite into their life. This is a sign that tends to be light of heart and full of fun. While quick-footed, Sagittarians can be forever ready to jump to the next thing without a moments pause. Charoite can help this flighty sign to ground down and embrace more of the present moment.
How to Use Charoite Stones One of the best ways to embrace the enigmatic energy of Charoite is to wear it close to the skin.
