Andalusite is a color-changing stone. In massive form it's called Chiastolite (or cross stone), and shows a strong dark cross when cut. In its crystalline form, Andalusite is translucent and unusual. These chips are better in small doses, to highlight the color change properties, rather than in large numbers in one necklace.
