STAUROLITE 925 STERLING SILVER JEWELLERY
Staurolites can form as twinned crystals at 60° or 90°, resulting in unique natural cruciforms. As a result, these stones are commonly referred to as "fairy crosses" or "fairy stones." Over time, they've spawned a slew of metaphorical connotations. A Virginia legend claims that the tears of fairies grieving at the news of Christ's death changed into these stones, according to George F. Kunz, a prominent mineralogist, and folklorist. Cross-shaped staurolites have also been used as good luck charms by people from many cultures throughout history.
