These delightful freeform tumbled stones are natural Andalusite crystal! Although they have not taken on the characteristic cross pattern common to Chiastolite, they're still a wonder to behold and a joyful addition to any crystal collection. Their mauve to red-brown tones mixed with black carbon inclusions give these Andalusite stones a unique beauty all their own!

Andalusite (sometimes called Andalousite, Andaluzite, or Apyre) is a natural gemstone that can be found in several shades, but it commonly ranges from pinkish-mauve to reddish brown. A sibling of Kyanite and Sillimantite, Andalusite can sometimes exhibit a flashy appearance when turned in the light, and faceted jewelry grade specimens can display pleochroism. When Andalusite stone features carbon inclusions that make the shape of a cross or compass points, it is referred to as Chiastolite (aka: Lapis Crucifer, Crucite, Cross Stone, Chyastolith, Macle, or Maltesite). 

The metaphysical properties of Andalusite make it a gemstone often called upon when seeking protection, guidance, comfort, and spiritual growth. Since it resonates with strong, positive energies, Andalusite is known for balancing the entire Chakral column, although it is most associated with the Root Chakra and Crown Chakra, and is used in emotional healing to encourage self confidence, happiness, and the removal of blockages. The meaning of Andalusite is in lifting us up from the challenges that surround us, so it is often carried by those seeking signs, protection, and blessings from the universe. It is said that Andalusite, when worn or carried, inspires self improvement and spiritual awareness by promoting a supportive, optimistic environment for us to grow.

How to Cleanse Andalusite
We always advise charging and cleansing crystals using Selenite or the Full Moon, as these options will not cause any damage to any kind of stone. Smoke Cleansing with Sage, Incense, or dried herbs are other safe methods for removing stagnant or negative energies from your crystals. A Dry Salt Bath is also a good cleansing method to use for this gem.

Andalusite has a Mohs hardness of approximately 6.5 - 7.5, but because it often contains black carbon inclusions, its Mohs hardness can range from 5 to 7.5 depending on rate of inclusion. To be cautious, we don't advise long-term submersion of Andalusite stones as a method for cleansing. A quick dunk or wiping with a damp cloth will not hurt, but leaving your Andalusite in liquid longterm can soften the stone, making it easier to scratch or break.

Product Information:
You will receive one freeform tumbled Andalusite stone measuring approximately 0.5 - 1 inch long. These pieces do not feature the cross pattern found in Chiastolite specimens. Because these are natural Andalusite tumbled stones, they may feature texture, dips, or irregular shaping.
