CHAROITE

Charoite is a newer semi-precious gemstone from Russia that was discovered around 1978 near the Charo River in the Murun Mountains in Yakutia (Siberia). The color of this unusual gemstone ranges from opaque lilac to a deep violet. A natural swirling and fibrous pattern of white and black strands characterize this unique stone. Some Charoite, like the stones in Miriam’s Charoite jewelry, exhibit striking flame patterns. Miriam’s beads were purchased years ago, when the quality of the Charoite “flames” was at its peak – with rich lilac to violet colorations and a vivid pearl-like chatoyant glow. More recently mined stones, while still pretty, have more quartz in them and less of the flaming purple. (A similar flame-like pattern is shown in Green Seraphinite, which is also mined in Siberia.)
