Charoite is a beautiful gemstone highly valued for its striking appearance and unique qualities. It is a rare mineral that was first discovered in Russia in the 1940s and is named after the Chara River, where it was found.
One of the most notable features of Charoite is its beautiful purple color, which ranges from light lavender to deep violet. Its color is caused by the presence of potassium, sodium, calcium, and barium in its chemical makeup. The stone often contains swirling patterns and veins of black, white, and other colors, making each piece unique and visually stunning.
Charoite is a relatively hard mineral, with a Mohs hardness rating of 5 to 6. This means that it is durable and can withstand daily wear and tear, making it a popular choice for jewelry. It is often used as cabochons, beads, and other decorative pieces in jewelry making. Its polished surface has a glassy luster, adding to its beauty and elegance.
Due to its limited availability, Charoite is highly sought by collectors and those who appreciate unique gemstones. It has become a favorite among designers who seek to incorporate rare and distinctive gems into their creations. The stone's beauty and rarity have made it a valuable addition to any jewelry collection.
In conclusion, Charoite is a mesmerizing gemstone known for its exquisite purple color and intricate patterns. Its durability and rarity have made it a favorite among designers and collectors. The stone's one-of-a-kind qualities make it an excellent choice for those seeking a distinctive and exclusive gemstone for their jewelry creations.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
