Charolite Physical Properties
It is found to date in only one location: along the Chary River at Aldan in Russia. It formed from alteration of limestones by the close presences of an alkali-rich nephline syenite intrusion. The heat, pressure and more importantly, the infusion of unique chemicals into the rock are responsible for the transformations into new minerals such as charoite. Why charoite has not been found in other locations is not fully understood. But it is probably due to a combination of a chemically unique limestone reacting with a chemically unique intrusion and subjected to unique physical conditions. The colour of charoite is described as a stunning lavender, lilac, violet or purple. The white crystalline needles give charoite a very distinctive appearance and depth often forming a swirling pattern of interlocking crystals.
