Chiastolite is a variety of Andalusite that contains a black cross pattern when seen in a cross-section. It is also known as the Cross Stone. 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.
Physically, use Chiastolite to help with nerve damage, muscle weaknesses, rheumatism and gout. It can aide those who are debilitated by stroke or other paralysis.

| Wonderful info. Felt an instant resonance with the stone I was holding, as I read your article.|
Thank you also, for the information on the "4 directions" and centealplacement in the home. I've been keeping a piece in each window which has worked wonders too for Harmony and Balance within my home. (Submitted by: Freedom on April 22, 2020)
