Chrysanthemum Stone formed from the geological changes that occurred some 248 to 290 million years ago in the Permian age of the Paleozoic era. It was created from high temperatures and from the compression of thick, rich, organic mud at the bottom of the sea. As calcium carbonate and strontium sulfate seeped into the mix, continued pressure and deposition allowed radial lath-like crystals to be formed as flower patterns. These flower crystals are made up of Andalusite, Feldspar, and Calcite. The brown or black base rock is made up of Porphyry, Gypsum Clay, Limestone, or Dolomite.
Chrysanthemum is a stone of change and transformation. This is the stone for anyone who feels "stuck" physically, emotionally or spiritually. Its main task is to remove obstructions that block you from achieving movement forward on your life’s path. It also helps to relieve pain and bring harmony in the midst of change. Its is said to be useful in treating the disorders of the eyes, skin and skeletal system and also eliminating growths and toxins in the body.
