Charoite is a rare silicate mineral, first described in 1978 and named for the Chara River. It has been reported only from the Aldan Shield, Sakha Republic, Siberia, Russia. Charoite is very beautiful, and while its color is predominantly purple, it is known to have swirling patterning of black, brown, white and lilac within the stone.
This patterning is caused by inclusions of other minerals, such as white Calcite for example, and will vary from stone to stone. Many of the natural crystals are predominantly purple, and are very beautiful stones.
