Chiastolite, often referred to as "Fairy Cross Stone" or "Cross Stone" is a variety of the mineral Andalusite. It's distinctive black, cross-shaped inclusions come from graphite.


The presence of a cross has made this stone a popular choice for jewelry since it was first featured in Laet's book, De Gemmis et Lapidibus, published in 1648. 

Chiastolite specimens were later distributed throughout Europe from the 16th century, as an amulet or souvenir provided by the pilgrims returning from Santiago de Compostela (Saint James of Compostella), in Spain
