Staurolite crystals that form 90º twins are rare, and large ones even rarer. This choice specimen features a 2.2" "fairy cross" sitting up on a matrix of silver gray mica schist that provides an excellent contrast with the dark, red-brown of the staurolite. The crystal is very sharp and well formed.
