When staurolite forms twins at a 90 degree angle in a cross formation, they are called "fairy crosses." This one is a superb example, with sharp, smooth faces and crisp edges and corners that perfectly define the cross. The color is a dark, reddish brown, and there is no damage. These grew in a soft mica schist which has been removed with a high-pressure washer.
