This spectacular purple sphere is made up of Charoite featuring inclusions of Aegirine, Calcite, Quartz and Tenaxite.
Aegirine (also known as Acmite) is a sodium iron silicate mineral with a hardness of 6. Its color is black, greenish black or brownish black and it shapes in prismatic crystals, sometimes with sharp terminations. Aegirine is known metaphysically for stripping negative or stuck energies from the body.
Calcite is a carbonate mineral and the most stable polymorph of calcium carbonate and is a 3 on the Mohs scale. How is calcite formed? Calcite is created by direct precipitation from waters rich in calcium. Calcite metaphysically is believed to improve thought, develop memory, and nurture development.
Charoite was formed when an igneous rock composed chiefly of feldspar impacted into some chemically complex limestone deposits. It is an intricate mix of materials, giving it a fibrous or spotted look. Charoite is milky when first uncovered and after cutting and polishing, charoite has mixed translucency, with a luminance of purples. The only deposit of this unique material is in Russia, making it extremely rare. Metaphysically, it is believed Charoite encourages inner strength, assertiveness, and self-esteem.
Clear quartz is one of the most abundant minerals in the world and is rated at a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. It can be found in many forms such as tumbled, carved and rough. It can develop in a wide range of environments and can be found on every continent. Clear quartz is thought metaphysically to promote understanding, clarity, and is associated with inner strength.
