Miniature, 4.5 x 4.5 x 1.4 cm
A very large and equant staurolite "cross twin," from this classic old locality for the material. Most are 1 inch or smaller, this is a relatively large one to be in such symmetric form. It seems to be either partially included by muscovite, or perhaps partially altered to a species of mica, as there are micaceous flecks within the surface. Ex. Harold Urish Collection.
