The black cross pattern is what makes the Chiastolite an attractive stone. It is a variety of Andalusite that originated from ancient China. The symbol of the four points represents north, south, east and west and when you place it in the center of your room or home, it will fuse chi energy and radiate it outward which welcomes good health and harmony.
It is known as a protective stone and is often worn to shield off negative energies, dark entities and curses. Resonating with our Root Chakra, it helps us with nerve damage, muscle issues such as weakness and spasms and even gout and rheumatoid diseases. The soft vibration will also help the debilitated who may have suffered from a stroke or paralysis.
