View Full Version : Charoite

I just bought a charoite stone last week or so, when I was in a new age-y kinda shop looking for stuff for the tarot exchange I was in. I'm not sure what to do with it. LOL

The stone just sort of resonated with me, so I bought it and took it home.


It's a small rectangular, brick shaped stone, about 5x10 mm (I'm guessing)
It came with a little slip of paper with it's uses written on it, but I am thinking that's the crystal equiv. to LWB. So I'd like to your collective brains about it.

What's it good for? And how do I use it?

I'm thinking that I was attracted to it for a particular reason, probably related to some issue in my life going on right now...

Oh I just got some of this a little while ago to - so 'soft and supportive'


Charoite is a purple, Russian, ornamental gemstone. Charoite is emotionally and spiritually uplifting; it integrates ideas within the collective unconscious.
Vision, revolution, loyalty and progression.
Heps people sympathise with those who have to struggle.
Affirmation: I use self-expression as an avenue for dramatic change.

I must go meditate with this today :)

I have a piece , I think it's fantastic I also love it because where it has been made to look tumbled and shiney there are fragments of the other rocks stuck/lodged in a crevice of the stone which I think its fasinating.

Rainbow crystals (cited above) is a great resource for metaphysical uses of stones. IMO, the information is usually original and seems to be based on the experience of the author rather than repeating what others say.

Here is another write up on Charoite (sorry don't know the website)

Charoite was quickly adopted as a power stone to aid in transformations. It survived great trauma, rains, winds, heat and cold, only to become more beautiful over time.

Color: The colors in each piece of Charoite range from bright lavender, violet and lilac to dark purple with both white, gray and black veining. It forms a swirling pattern of interlocking crystals. Royal lavendar flows with chatoyant streaks of white around bits of black, peach and opalescent gray.

I find charoite to be a wonderful stone to help facilitate a major change, such as breaking a bad habit. I use it along with clear crystal and amethyst for this purpose. I meditate while holding the stones and laying the clear crystal on my forehead. Also, I like to sleep with clear crystal under my pillow and the other stones on my nightstand. Be cautious about sleeping with stones, though, as some find that too strong. All the best with your new stone.

Here is the link to the website that the above noted quote came from - they have good information there about other stones as well:

Just wanted to say thanks to all who replied to this. I found the stone very helpful in helping me let go of a relationship that was extremely one-sided and very toxic to me. It finally let my mind take over for where my heart was leading me astray, which is to say that it restored the balance between the chakras of my heart and my mind as promised.
