Staurolite, also known as Fairy Cross Stone, is a nesosilicate mineral that naturally occurs in cross shapes (cruciform). Staurolite contains aluminum, zinc, magnesium, and iron. The color of this stone can be black, dark brown, or deep brownish red. The minerals usually cross at a 60 or 90-degree angle, with some specimens representing a perfect perpendicular cross. Usually, they are found in a Quartz or Muscovite matrix but sometimes can be found as loose crystals. Staurolite can be found all over the world but is most commonly found in the United States but can be found in Russia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, France, Italy, and Switzerland.
