Chiastiolite Crystal Slice
Chiastolite is a variety of andalusite. This reddish-brown-gray stone has a distinctive graphite cross in the center. It's a bit harder to see in the more natural and unpolished specimens, but the cross is there.
These natural specimens of this crystal are fairly rare, we don't have them in the shop very often. Even the tumbled variety is hard to come by these days. These specimens are very special.
As a healing crystal, it is powerfully protective that can be used to dispel negative thoughts. Mentally it aids problem solving by strengthening analytic capabilities.
Chiastolite is a soothing crystal that bestows strength, power, and tenacity. Many people believe it is a powerful barrier against bad energy since it deflects rather than absorbs it, and its use is to ward off curses. It also has a solid link to the death and rebirth cycle and can help accept life beyond death.
These specimens each measure approximately 3.3 cm x 3.5 x 3.3 cm to 3.5 cm
