Chiastolite gives us persistance in realizing our identity and our
life’s task. It enhances conscious awareness and is used as a sign of
devotion. Chiastolite calms fears, nervousness, and feelings of guilt.
Chiastolite is a form of andalusite occuring in the shape of long
prisms within carbonaceous clay slates. Growth occurs in layers with
carbon deposited along the crystal edges as diagonal cruciform shapes
are formed. It is also known as cross-stone.
