When staurolite crystallizes as 90-degree twins, the cruciform shapes are called "fairy crosses" because of ancient legends about how they were formed. This one is a fine specimen 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. There is a small almandine garnet crystal embedded in the crystal.
