Charoite is a silicate mineral which occurs in association with tinaksite and canasite. Its vivid violet colour and other exciting properties often lead people to believe that it is a lab-created stone, although it isn’t.
Charoite looks very attractive when it’s fashioned into beads or cabochons.

Charoite varies in colour: from violet to deep lilac, although in some variations of accompanying minerals it can be white, flamed, or black-spotted.
With flame-like inclusions, slight to moderate chatoyancy and silky vitreous luster, it is one of the most eye-catching natural stones. The patterns in Charoite are striking, often with a feather-like or swirling appearance.
Usually, it’s found in massive form, varying in transparency from translucent to opaque. Charoite hardness varies from 5-6 on the Mohs scale according to some sources, and 4.5-5 according to others.
