Legend states that it was once believed that the crystals were formed from the tears of fairies. When the fairies heard about the death of Christ their tears fell down to earth and created the cross shaped crystals. Staurolite is also considered to be a good luck charm, protect children from evil spirits, stabilise emotions and aid in the expulsion of addictive behavior.

 

SCIENCE

A silicate mineral, with a complex chemical formula, staurolite combines the elements of iron, aluminium and magnesium to form a gemstone with a hardness of 7 —7.5 belonging to the monoclinic crystal system. Its hardness makes it a suitable mineral for jewellery although the bright, glittery, mica schist matrix that it sits in is far softer and delicate. Staurolite can also be found in association with almandine garnet and graphite.

Forming through the process of regional metamorphism, staurolite crystals can be identified by their twinned, cross- shaped nature. Twinning refers to when two or more crystals have grown together with a direct relationship between their crystallographic axis. In the case of staurolite, they

are inter-penetrant twins and can form at either 60° or 90° rotations to one another. Crystals found at a perfect 90° are rare and even more so are those that exhibit both, creating a 3-rayed star with 6 points.

OUR ETHICS

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.

Read more:
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators. 

The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing. 

Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.

We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
