Charoite is found only in the Murun Massif, Chara River area of the Torgo River Basin, Aldan Shield, Southwest Yakutia (Sakha Republic), Eastern-Siberian Region, Russia. It was discovered in 1947, but was not introduced to the outside world until about 1978. This beautiful mineral has swirling colors of violet, purple and lavender and occassionally swirls of white Feldspar, yellow Canasite, orange Tinaksite and black Aegirine mixed in. Some specimens are beautifully chatoyant. The mineral is a massive material suitable for making large objects such as bookends and vases and also cabochons. Cabochons look alive with swirling colors and chatoyance. The look of Charoite is unlike any other mineral.

Charoite is named for the Chara River, Russia, near which it was discovered. However, I have heard that the name comes from the Russian word “”chary”” which means “”charms”” or “”magic”” due to its beautiful chatoyance.

I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

Like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul.

Authorities in our business will tell in no uncertain terms that Lorem Ipsum is that huge, huge no no to forswear forever. Not so fast, I'd say, there are some redeeming factors in favor of greeking text, as its use is merely the symptom of a worse problem to take into consideration.

Safe delivery, ensures the movement of goods in a short time.

You begin with a text, you sculpt information, you chisel away what's not needed, you come to the point, make things clear, add value, you're a content person, you like words. Design is no afterthought, far from it, but it comes in a deserved second. Anyway, you still use Lorem Ipsum and rightly so, as it will always have a place in the web workers toolbox, as things happen, not always the way you like it, not always in the preferred order. Even if your less into design and more into content strategy you may find some redeeming value with, wait for it, dummy copy, no less.
