The Chrysanthemum Stone, or “Flower Stone,” is a beautiful and unexpected gift from Mother Earth, a symbol of optimism and joy, named for its near perfect representation of this cheerful flower. The contrast of the white to silver-gray flowers against a solid black matrix makes this stone appealing as much for its aesthetic beauty as its ability to provide a calm, reflective energy that invites one to savor each moment before it has passed. The Chrysanthemum Stone is known for integrating change and harmony, and lending the knowledge of how the two work together to help one “bloom” and progress on the path to the perfect Self. It ameliorates negative mindsets and strengthens one’s character, while enhancing compatibility with others and the renewal of relationships.
Called the “Stone of Wealth and Honor” by the Chinese people for centuries, Chrysanthemum Stone is the official symbol of the Chinese Imperial family.
To receive the wonderful benefits of Chrysanthemum Stone, carry as pocket stones or simply place it in one’s environment.
Carrying one when working abroad in a land where you are not welcome, or have a job where people are hostile. It radiates harmony and encourages stability and trust. It aids in curbing one’s own resentment and animosity, and helps one progress toward unity.
Chrysanthemum Stone activates dormant skills, talents and potential abilities that lie within the Self. For those who feel they have missed their calling, or are unsure of what their gifts might be, this stone inspires, enlivens and enkindles. It can bring the impetus to do something one has always wanted to do and draws in unexpected opportunities from the Universe that could assist one in living out their dreams.
Chrysanthemum Stone lends the courage to make decisions and to leave one’s comfort zone. It is a marvellous talisman of change for remaining open to new possibilities. This stone is excellent for finding a relationship later in life after devoting one’s life to caring for others.
