Additional Information

Charoite is known as “The Acceptance Stone”, as it assists us in accepting difficult circumstances or situations in our lives, and helps us to cope with profound changes. It promotes relaxation, alleviates stress and worry, aids sleep and induces profound dreams.

Charoite is associated with the transformation of negative energy into positivity. It is also highly cleansing and is often used in conjunction with amethyst to accelerate healing and remove fear. It is recommended for those with disturbed sleep and bad dreams, as well as to empower the inner self. A rare crystal, only discovered in 1947, it is still only found near the Charo River in Russia.
