    Is it by any chance that you need \divideontimes ?

  • Absolutely, Adam! That is what I need. Is this the code I ought to use? Commented Oct 30, 2014 at 6:34

    Yes. If this is what you want I am placing it as an answer.

  • There are some questions on Math.SE about what this symbol is for, maybe you could provide some explanation on what you needed it for? older question / newer question

The symbol you need to use is produced by the following command:



Here are some possibilities with the use of unicode (just as a demonstrative addition to Adam's answer). The Unicode for this symbol is U+22C7.

% arara: lualatex


    $\divideontimes$\setmathfont{XITS Math}$\divideontimes$\setmathfont{Asana Math}$\divideontimes$\setmathfont{TeX Gyre Pagella Math}$\divideontimes$

enter image description here

PS: If you want to use one of the first-row symbols, you will have to wrap it in a \mathrel{} command.
