The heat, pressure and more importantly, the infusion of unique chemicals into the rock is responsible for the transformations into new minerals such as charoite. Charoite is named after the nearby Charo River.The Russians first discovered charoite in 1947 in the Murun mountains in Yakutia, but it was not known in the West until 1978.
