Chiastolite is a variety of Andalusite that contains black particles of graphite arranged in geometric patterns. The graphite is pushed aside by crystal growth within a rock that is being metamorphosed. As growth occurs, the particles become concentrated at crystal interfaces. The result can be a cross-shaped pattern within the mineral. Attractive specimens are often cut and polished for use as amulets, charms, and novelty gems.

In ancient China where it originated, Chiastolite was a symbol of the four cardinal points (north, south, east, west), and when placed in the center of the home, will fuse chi energy and radiate it outwards, thus welcoming health and harmony. Chiastolite is a protective stone, often worn to guard against negative energies, curses and the like. It encourages creative thinking and problem-solving by getting rid of old thought patterns that have been keeping us from moving ahead.

Sometimes it is also referred to as the Fairy Cross Stone, but this is inaccurate. Staurolite is the Fairy Cross Stone has a three-dimensional cross, but Chiastolite has a linear cross. Both Staurolite and Chiastolite are called Cross Stone, but they are totally different gemstones.
