Keivy Mountains, Lovozersky District, Murmansk Oblast, Russia

Brown cruciform doubly terminated staurolite twins on sparkling golden muscovite schist. Staurolite classically forms crosses and "x"es but this is an unusually thick example. The twins go through the entire specimen, so can be seen from both sides. Some of the best examples of the species extant. This quality is not often offered.

Staurolite crystals simulating the typical 60° Saint Andrew's cross embedded in golden to silvery mica schist.

"Perfect cross"
