Charoite, known as the "Soul Stone", is a great grounding stone for healers, as it grounds higher frequency energies into the physical world. It is also great for grounding spiritual energy. This helps one remain calm and focused. Charoite is also a highly protective stone and emanates much light energy.
Healing properties of Charoite include, but not limited to: regulates blood pressure, soothes headaches, aids hearing disorders, cures insomnia, elixir for arthritis, heals liver problems, strengthens immune system, aids alcohol detox, and removes health issues arising from fears and/or negativity.
This beautiful piece of charoite is a silicate mineral with a hardness of 5-6. Charoite gemstones tend to have a vitreous to pearly luster and sometimes chatoyant (cat eye effect). This particular charoite gemstone is a beautiful grape purple, and was destined to be the center of attention in one of my handcrafted copper cuff bracelets. I just love pairing purple with copper - it's a wonderful color contrast.
