Chiastolite is named from the Greek chiastos, meaning “cross marked,” and in ancient times this powerfully protective stone was used to ward off the Evil Eye. A gateway into mysteries, it facilitates journeys out of the body and assists exploration of immortality. Linked to death and rebirth, it is helpful for those making transitions, maintaining spirituality during illness or trauma. Attuning to the soul’s purpose, Chiastolite dissolves illusions and calms fears, enabling reality to be faced, and is particularly helpful for overcoming fear of going mad. This stone assists in seeing all sides of a problem, transmuting dissension into harmony and dispelling negative thoughts and feelings.
