These are small Chiastolite palmstones, measuring between 30-50MM approximately.
Chiastolite is a variety of Andalusite, which is prized for an unusual formation – a cross shape, usually running through the centre of the stone. The cross shape is comprised of Graphite. Obviously, whereever possible, these pieces are cut to where the cross lies naturally.
Because these pieces are cut from natural stone pieces, the colours, inclusions, size and shape varies from piece to piece.
