Here is a near-perfect reddish-brown staurolite fairy cross is an unusually sharply formed crystal.  The arms of the twinned crystal are almost perfectly equal in length, the angles are very sharp, and the faces of the crystal are unusually smooth.  The luster is good, and slightly sparkly, due to traces of muscovite mica still clinging to the staurolite, which came out of a mica schist matrix.   Cleaned but not enhanced.
