Charoite, one of a small number of the purple gemstones, is a rare mineral that has only been available to the jewelry industry since the late 1970s. Charoite beads have a decadent purple marbling, sometimes with a fibrous appearance. Some charoite beads have a hint of chatoyancy. Charoite is believed by many to help release fear and negative energies.
Beads are temporarily strung with spacers to protect against chipping. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items.
