Chiastolite, A stone that is very Unique.

Chiastolite Jewellery

It is Andalusite crystals that contain a cross shaped inclusion caused by carbon usually from graphite. It is otherwise known as a “Cross Stone” because of the cross like naturally developed patterns.

I have read that the name derived from a Greek word “chiastos” which means “cross marked”but the Oxford Dictionary says that the name is early 19th century: from Greek khiastos 'arranged crosswise' + -

The stone is rich in carbon impurities. It was first discovered in Spain and it is found in red, brown, orange and green color.

The stone has a hardness rating of 7.5 on Mohs scale suitable for designing various kinds of jewellery.

The gemstone is found in many countries namely Brazil, Sri Lanka, France, Russia, Chile, Algeria, France, Canada, America and Australia (click here for a map of a mine in Australia).

The structure of the gemstone is orthorhombic.
