Chiastolite History Mythology Information:  The Oxford Dictionary states that the Chiastolite comes from the Greek word ‘Khiastos’ meaning ‘arranged crosswise’.   Chiastolite is a variety of Andalusite that has a cross pattern through it when cut right.  It was believed to be connected to the four cardinal points (North, South, East and West) in ancient China.  It is believed that if you place a stone in the center of your home that it will radiate chi energy out and bring health and harmony in.

Chiastolite Metaphysical Healing Properties Information:  Chiastolite is a very protective stone that helps you to combat negative energy that is being sent or directed towards you from other people.  It is a very grounding stone that helps to stimulate your Sacral Chakra and assists with getting your creative juices following as well as giving you more Chi/Parana on a physical level.    Chiastolite is a stone that will help you to dissolve any illusion around you and calm your fears moving forward, therefore helping you to release old patterns and move forward to find your life purpose.

I have found that just like the points of a compass Chiastolite is a stone that is grounding, comforting and assist to point you in the right direction when you are feeling lost.  It is a great travel talisman that will always help you to remember the way home.  Affirmation: No matter how far I travel I will always remember my way home.
