A pair of sharp, complete Staurolite crystals that were added to the Levison Collection in 1898. These are labeled as from from Mine Hill, Georgia. This not a known locale but these do look much like some of the more recent Fannin County materials. One is twinned and the other is a single crystal, sharp textbook form. A photocopy of the Levison Ledger page is included as is his printed and handwritten label with the date.
10 x 7.6 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
A French Staurolite on matrix from an old collection, the crystals are up to 2.7 cm in size. There are several penetrations that seem to be twinned, and the crystals protrude nicely from the matrix. A sizable piece with many crystals, displays very well.
