Chiastolite is a variety of Andalusite. ALL varieties are highly protective.
Chiastolite in particular bestows #strength, power and perseverance to the user; and is extremely calming.
Considered by many to be a #strong protector against negative energies as it deflects - rather than absorbs - them, it has been used in past times as a #ward against curses (the shield).
It also has a strong connection with
the continuing cycle of #death and rebirth - aiding one in the acceptance of life beyond this mortal realm.
With the 5th (Throat) Chakra - chiastolite helps us to '#speak our Truth'.
It aid in opening the 6th and 7th (Third Eye and Crown) Chakras, encouring both #psychic and spiritual development, and aiding one to go into a deeper meditiation.
Chiastolite will also assist one in aligning all their Chakras, "Lighting Them Up" (as it were) - opening and stimilulating them - when used with that intent.
Andalusite can assist one in connecting with the past, and old memories, including #past-life work.
Physically - it helps repair structural damage to both bones and connective tissue, and is warming where placed.
