Beauty Transformed

“As you simplify your life,
the laws of the universe will be simpler;
solitude will not be solitude,
poverty will not be poverty,
nor weakness weakness.”

Henry David Thoreau

CHAROITE… “stimulates the ability to integrate rapidly changing energies, which can be the result of shocking circumstances on earth or effects from off-planet energies such as astrological cycles and discoveries in astronomy… Charoite contains power in subtlety, the majesty of being able to evoke increasing levels of awareness based on being able to integrate increasing complexity of insight. While it encourages depth of surrender and search, it opens to larger fields of beauty and truth. Charoite speaks naturally of bridging what is viewed as wild and unattainable, even threatening in its prospect, with what is most real, most whole and most visceral within the self. Therefore, it occupies a position of being on the edge where diverse realities meet, share and integrate to create new species of thought, artistic expression, and eras of human endeavor.” Crystalline Communion 2000, Collen Marquist & Jack Frasl

Scientific Properties: Charoite is an unusual mineral of quite rare occurrence. It is found today only in one location, along the Chary River at Aldan in Russia. It formed from an alteration of limestones by the close presences of an alkali-rich nephline syenite intrusion. It is the heat, the pressure and more importantly, the infusion of unique chemicals into the rock that is responsible for the transformations into completely new minerals such as charoite. Why charoite has not been found in other locations is not fully understood, but is is probably due to a combination of a chemically unique limestone reacting with a chemically unique intrusion and subjected to unique physical conditions.

Mystical Properties: Charoite is often called a ‘stone of transformation’ as well as a stone of power. In particular it transforms negative emotions such as anger and fear into positive feelings. As a part of the transformation process it allows release of those negative emotions, so one can change and move forward. More Properties
