This amazing Charoite Vase was handmade in Russia, in Yakutia region by a master stone carver. Charoite stone has only been known for less than 35 years and already became very popular among collectors of rare and unusual stones. Its name is based on the the Chara River in eastern Siberia, Russia. The region in which charoite was discovered is difficult to reach, and this is the only location in the world where this stone is found. The heat, pressure and more importantly, the infusion of unique components into the rock are responsible for the formations into new minerals such as charoite. Why charoite has not been found in other locations is not fully understood. It is a beautiful lavender color with unusual swirling patterns, and sometimes,with a shimmery luster. The white crystalline needles give charoite a very distinctive appearance and depth. The vase weights approximately 10 lb, and stands 10.25' tall with diameter #.75". It will make a very beautiful and valuable addition to one's collection.
