Chrysotile is a soft, fibrous-silicate mineral that is in the Serpentine sub-group of phyllosilicates. Chrysotile is an asbestiform mineral in the amphibole group and should not be cut or polished without proper protective gear. Chrysotile shows off a cats eye, chatoyant effect when cut and polished properly.
These Chrysotile pendants have a fun, unique shape and an incredible chatoyant effect within the lighter-green bands! They catch the light enough to create an eye-catching natural effect when worn, and the top-drilled hole is large enough that a variety of cord types could be used with this pendant.
Chrysotile is thought to enhance inner strength-of-will, resourcefulness, and is noted to be a great stone to keep close after any kind of separation. Chrysotile is an earthy stone, and is associated with the Root Chakra and Throat Chakra.
