History & Origin:
Chiastolite is a rare variety of Andalusite that is known for its distinctive cross-shaped pattern. This unique mark is the result of black inclusions of Graphite & Carbon within the stone. It is currently found in three main localities; Massachusetts, USA, Asturias in Spain & South Australia. From holding divine messages from the Gods, to acting as a good luck charm & a talisman of protection against the Evil Eye, Chiastolite’s sacred & special markings have led many to believe it holds mystical powers. It was a particularly important stone during 16th century Spain, where they were carried as amulets on religious pilgrimages, as well as for the colonists of Lancaster, Massachusetts, who sent these treasures back to England, eager to share their mysterious cross-marked discoveries.
