Before it was closed in 2011, the hill behind Pearl Lake was the premiere locality for staurolite in New England. I found this piece in 2005, about halfway up the north side of the hill. It features several crystals, one twinned and one that is nearly 2" long. All the crystals are a dark, reddish brown color, which contrasts nicely with the gray schist matrix.
