While new to the commercial market, charoite and similar materials have been used locally for healing and ceremonial purposes. People from Mongolia created ornamental objects using the richly purple stone, and commonly boiled a stone into their tea water. They believed doing so would strengthen family ties.
Sometimes called a "stone of transformation," charoite is thought to aid the transformation of negative emotions into positive ones. It is believed to encourage inner strength, assertiveness, creativity and self-esteem. Charoite helps you to cut through the noise, to embrace deep insight, and to live in accordance with your highest sense of authenticity.
