Chiastolite Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Chiastolite

Know where your crystals come from

This Chiastolite comes from a mine in the Hunan, China. The exact deposit is unknown, but it may have been a byproduct of small-scale coal mining.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Chiastolite Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published January 2015  •  Updated July 2022  •  Read Time: 6 minutes
Chiastolite yellowish-brown variety of Andalusite, famous for its distinctive black cross.  The cross is actually Graphite growing at the same time within the Andalusite.  Because of this symbol, Chiastolite has long been prized by Christians as a natural talisman.  This is particularly true in Spain, where many of the best specimens can be found.  It is often carried by pilgrims walking the road to Santiago. Chiastolite has a calm and grounding presence that helps us to become our Highest Self.  It helps us to focus during prayer and meditation so that we are fully present in our spiritual life rather than merely reciting our prayers by rote.

    I love love love the crystals and all of the significance and thought you put into the process makes them so special. It’s so different than just picking some out from a store based on their stated meanings to have somebody who can feel their energies and knows your specific story and needs to pick them out for you.

    I knew before I purchased that these would be the most special crystals I own and I was not disappointed. They are gorgeous, feel wonderful to touch and really do make me feel happy in some way.
