Charoite

Charoite is an enigmatic gemstone which stands out like a beacon of color in the bleak Russian mountains of Siberia where it was discovered a few decades ago.

Charoite Colors

Charoite can be quickly described as a purple or violet gemstone but look deeper and hidden treasures are revealed with swirls of black and wispy clouds of white decorating the smooth silky surface.

The bright violet and purple colors with lilac, lavender and heather undertones and what look like hand-painted markings have led many people to believe it is a man-made gemstone.

Not so, this is an all-natural beauty.

Charoite Species

Charoite is a rather unique gemstone that should technically be called a rock as it is usually made up of a combination of various different minerals.

The lovely violet or purple gemstones you see on our website are made up of mostly Charoite material - which gives it the dominant color - but also contain other minerals such as augite, feldspar, tinaksite which contribute the white and black swirls or patterns.

Charoite Price

Charoite is a stunning gemstone which is quite rare and found in only one place on earth, yet it is still a very reasonably priced item.

As usual, the prices are dictated by the color, with bright violet hues the most sought-after and interesting swirls and flowing lines of black and white a welcome addition.

Look out for any odd colored patches as this can lower the price but, at the same time, certain patterns that create 'pictures' or 'motifs' can raise the value.

Carat Weight

Charoite can be found in huge slabs of rock in nature so finding large gemstones is not an issue. Therefore the price per carat does not rise with size.

It is almost solely the color that sets the price and most gemstones will fall into a price bracket of $1 - $3 per carat.

Treatments

When it was first shown around the world, people assumed this outstanding stone had to be man-made or artificially enhanced in some way but, in fact, Charoite is not treated in any way other than cutting and polishing.

Where is Charoite found?

Charoite is found in only one location in the whole world, in the Murun Mountain Range in the Republic of Sakha in Russia between the Chara and Tokko Rivers.

What jewelry is Charoite suitable for?

Charoite is rated at 5 on Mohs hardness scale so some care is needed when using it for jewelry items. Pendants, brooches and earrings should be fine but protective settings would be a good idea for rings.

With its gorgeous violet or purple colors, feathery patterns and availability in large and odd shapes, Charoite is ideal for unique one-off gemstones for jewelry making.

I had problems with PayPal. My customer service rep, Thomas, did a great job in shepherding me through the process. I ended up purchasing three stones, due to Thomas good customer service. Thomas deserves a raise and a week's vacation.

Everything was good about this order except I was a little disappointed in the product because it was so small. This is the first time that I have ever bought a gem so I was very unfamiliar with the sizes mainly because measurements were in metric.
