I had no idea that Charoite was a rare stone until I looked it up on Wikipedia. This gem is a rare silicate mineral that was named after the Chara River In Russia. It’s a lovely lavender to purple color with a pearly shine to it. I’ve only wrapped one many years ago when I’d first gotten started. This piece is rather new and I am just in love with its calming vibe.

Charoite is also know as the lilac stone or Charoite Jade. The word “chary’ means magic or charms in Russian. it’s known as a gem of the soul that reminds you to live in the present while helping you understand lessons that life may have to offer us.

It’s known for being able to provide clarity of the mind while helping you to unleash your creativity. It’s known to help one overcome their fears, resistance to their sacred path in life and face the constant changes that life throws at us with courge and love.

It’s known also to help one transform their mind by helping the to take a new approach to old information. See how you can alternate patterns to create a new way of doing things.

Hi, I’m Johnna

I’m an artist from Shreveport, LA who learned the art of wire wrapping gems and minerals into jewelry from Grammy winning musician, Daryl Thompson, who became like a father to me.

He is the one who intrudoced me to the healing world of crystals and I have been learning every since.

This world is ancient but can be applied to modern day times. 

My life is hectic–I work from home, am mothering a kitten who almost died, and am living the life of my dreams.

However, we always have to stay grounded and what keeps me grounded is working with the healing gifts of the mineral kingdom to create something.

Every single one of my jewelry designs has a person that is meant just for it.
