It is connected to the element of Earth and vibrates to the number 3.

Emotional: Chrysanthemum Stone teaches us that all good things are possible and that we are tremendously blessed.  It gives us a calm and happy confidence that enables us to go anywhere and do anything.  It helps us be more extroverted and willing to try new things and meet new people.  Chrysanthemum Stone also helps introverts protect their energy in social situations so that they can have fun without being overwhelmed.  Chrysanthemum Stone offers us a steady source of courage and curiosity to encourage us to explore more.  It sings that life is good and we should be merry.  It helps us keep our hearts young and our energy fresh.  Chrysanthemum Stone also wisely councils us so that we don’t become jaded by negative experiences.  Instead, Chrysanthemum Stone helps us to learn the appropriate lesson and then go forward again with an open and happy heart.   Chrysanthemum Stone encourages harmony and increases compatibility and trust between people.  It invites us to enjoying the present moment as it comes and to have no time for emotions like jealousy and resentment.  

Mental: Chrysanthemum Stone is helpful for anyone who is trying to figure out what they want to be “when they grow up.”  It encourages us to explore our strengths and interests, and to be open to new paths that we hadn’t considered before.  It helps us to find work that is enjoyable and profitable so that can enjoy all our waking hours.  If someone wants to change careers or start a new business, Chrysanthemum Stone is an enthusiastic cheerleader.  It encourages us to take a leap of faith and find our wings.  It advises us to be open to opportunities when they come and to hunt down opportunities that haven’t come calling yet.  Chrysanthemum Stone gives us courage to follow our dreams, in particular taking those first few steps which are often the hardest.   Chrysanthemum Stone encourages us to be authentic and good. It asks us to stand against bigotry, willful ignorance, hypocrisy, superficiality and other forms of narrow-mind thinking.

Physical: Chrysanthemum Stone is used by metaphysical healers to treat the female reproductive system and is considered a powerful fertility crystal.  It is also used on infants and children to help them grow strong and healthy.  Chrysanthemum Stone is also believed to help children and teens who are going through growth spurts and need extra spiritual, emotional and physical support.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Mineralogy of Chrysanthemum Stone

Chrysanthemum Stone, Yonghe, Hunan, China

Location: Chrysanthemum Stone is primarily mined near the city of Liuyang, in Huana, China.  It is also found in Canada (Vancouver), Japan, South Korea and the United States (California and around Lake Superior).

Rock Family: Chrysanthemum Stone is not a single mineral, but rather a rock. As an easy way to understand the difference, think of rocks as being like cookies and minerals as being the ingredients which make up those cookies. Many different minerals are used to create a rock!  Chrysanthemum Stone is a rare variety of Limestone which is partially silicified.  Limestone is primarily composed of Aragonite, Calcite and Quartz.  The white “flower” is typically Celestine (sometimes called Celestite) or Celestine partially displaced by Aragonite or Calcite.  Despite their similar appearance and names, it is not related to Chinese Writing Stone.

Mining: Originally Chrysanthemum Stone could be hand-gathered from the surface of the ground.  But as it has become more popular, production has become more disruptive.  Most of the Chrysanthemum Stone on the market comes from the clay mines in Hunan, China.

Enhancements: Chrysanthemum stones may be painted over to make their patterns more distinct.

History of Chrysanthemum Stone


Chrysanthemum Stone has only recently discovered by metaphysical healers in the Western world.  It has been a popular ornamental stone in China since the 18th century, and may have been using for healing purpose as well.   It’s name comes from the flower which it resembles.  In China, the chrysanthemum flower is associated with autumn and longevity.

According to Chinese myths dating back to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912),  there was once a pair of immortal lovers who spent their time walking along the path of the Liuyang River.  They scattered chrysanthemum petals and blossoms in the water, and their love was so pure that it turned the petals into stone.  According to another version, the man was turned into stone and his beloved became a chrysanthemum flower.  Their love was so strong, that they begged the gods to join them together, and Chrysanthemum Stone was the result.  Today, the center for Chrysanthemum Stone carving and polishing is in the city of Liuyang, which is along the banks of the river.
