What is the Average Cost of Staurolite? Average Staurolite Price

Staurolite as a metamorphic mineral is mainly used by the mineralogists to determine the degree of metamorphism. It is popular due the fact that its crystals are tinned and form the shape of a cross. Its name comes from the Greek “stauros” meaning cross and “lithos” meaning stone. It can be found in regional metamorphic rocks along with other minerals such as kyanite, micas, biotite and sillimanite. In Christianity it is associated with the symbol of cross and good luck. A specimen of 35 mm staurolite is sold for $55.
