StauroliteUsually found as red to brown prismatic crystals, the iron aluminium oxide mineral staurolite is very useful to metamorphic geologists, since it is fairly common and records the pressure and temperature of mineral transformation undergone in the bowels of the Earth by the precursor rocks (called protoliths). Indicating the metamorphic grade known as amphibolite facies, it commonly occurs in transformed mudstones and often forms a variety of beautifully twinned crystals such as this cross, chosen as illustration since today is Good Friday.The name comes from the Greek word for cross, and the twins are two crystals that have grown together interpenetrating each other at either 60 or 90 degrees. It has been a good luck charm for Christians since antiquity, and was known in olden days as fairy stone. Nowadays it is also the state mineral of Georgia (USA). It commonly occurs associated with garnet, kyanite and micas in regional metamorphic (i.e. wide scale) schists.Our past posts on twinned crystals: http://tinyurl.com/mvbojujhttp://tinyurl.com/l8yba54, http://tinyurl.com/ntdtdb6, http://tinyurl.com/nr7cq6n,http://tinyurl.com/kp6nluf and http://tinyurl.com/nr7cq6nLozImage credit: Mineral Auctionshttp://www.mindat.org/min-3753.html
