Ekanite is found in charoite rocks in the form of an accessory admixture of the smallest grains, but it causes an increased radioactivity of the ornamental stone, since it contains thorium as one of the mineral-forming elements - Ca2Th (Si8O20).

The mineral vadeite is found in charoitite as an accessory impurity.

Sticite is a mineral that occurs in charoitites as an accessory impurity, but is the reason for their rejection by the level of radioactive radiation due to the presence of thorium in its composition as one of the mineral-forming elements (K0.3 (Na, Ca) 2ThSi8O20).

The mineral is found in charoite rocks in the form of a rare accessory admixture, but it is a rock-forming material for the adjacent benstonite carbonatites, which are a promising source of barium and strontium.

The first mineral is aggrellite. The mineral found in charoitites as an accessory, but nevertheless, on an equal footing with other charoitite minerals, reflects the entire mineral wealth of this extraordinary rock.
