  • Staurolite is a red brown to black, mostly opaque, nesosilicate mineral with a white streak.
  • It crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system.
  • A special property of staurolite is that it often occurs twinned in a characteristic cross-shape.
  • In handsamples, macroscopically visible staurolite crystals are of prismatic shape.
  • They are often larger than the surrounding minerals and are then called porphyroblasts.
  • It is the official state mineral of the United States state of Georgia.
  • Staurolite is famous for its twinned crystals that form into the shape of a cross.
  • Its name comes from the greek for cross.
  • Staurolite crystals are formed in five colors; red, white, black, brown and yellow. All colors will turn gray when exposed to the elements for a long period of time.
  •  The twin is a classic penetration twin where it appears as if two crystals grew into and out of each other.
  • Metamorphie processes observable in the upper earth 's crust comprise reactions in asolid state, reequilibration,degassing, partial melting and re-hydration reactions.
  •  The metamorphic processes change density, texture, and modal mineralogy.
  • The Porto-Viseu Belt, located in the innermost zone of the Iberian Variscan Fold Belt the Central Iberian Zone (CIZ), corresponds to an antiformal structure developed during the D3 Variscan deformation event.
  • Staurolite is one of the index minerals that are used to estimate the temperature, depth, and pressure at which a rock undergoes metamorphism.
  • Staurolite is a common metamorphic mineral that is useful to geologists to determine the degree of metamorphism.
  • Staurolite crystals are formed in many stages of perfection, from a faint cross to a perfect cross and every stage in between.
