The original Charoite can contain green patches or black eugenic patches or even orange patches due to the presence of tinaxite. Pay attention to the sheet texture and the black and green dots on the charoite. Since quality reserves of this stone are scarce, many substitutes can be seen in the sample market. For example, they often paint them.
However, in general, this stone is not expensive and its average quality is traded in one dollar per carat. Note that synthetic (artificial) charoite does not exist due to the complexity of its Chemical composition and apparently no special improvement is done on it.
The optical phenomenon in Natural Charoite
Natural Rough Charoite have a picture of a waterfall taken with a long exposure. The water looks frozen and almost solid for a moment. This is what Charoit always makes me think about. This is a mysterious, almost ghostly and truly enchanting feature.
To add to the unusual appearance of this gem, it also has a bit of color and radiance of the variable Chatvians. It is a light phenomenon that is reflected from the surface as soon as light hits the gem.
It is more obvious in many other gems, such as chrysoberyl or alexandrite with cat's eye or tiger's eye, both of which have a greater chateau effect than charoite. Remind of a storm moving in the sky. It has a surreal, wavy and stormy appearance, unlike any other gem.
