The Chrysanthemum Stone, or "Flower Stone," is a symbol of optimism and joy, named for its near-perfect representation of this cheerful flower serendipitously found within the black stone. 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.
