Chrysanthemum stone has an onyx-black matrix with andalusite crystal that spray out into a chrysanthemum-like pattern -- hence the name. It is found only in the Yangtze River valley of the Hunan Province in China.

Curiously, it strongly resembles the Chinese Writing stone late 19th-century Chinese workers found in the Auburn, California region of the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, as they built the railroad along the American River. In that stone the crystalline structure is more random, resembling Chinese characters of their written language.

The chrysanthemum flower is treasure by many Asian cultures as the year's late and last bloomers and can be found on imperial crests in both Japan and China.

an excellent example of chrysanthemum stone in a soft-cornered square focal; matching onyx blocks; sterling silver cubes for accent; finished with a Bali .998 silver j-hook clasp
