The Crystal of the Day for Monday 4 November 2013 is Staurolite. The twin crystals found on staurolite are sometimes referred to as ‘Faery crosses’ – as it was once believed to be created by the tears of faeries whom could not help but cry when they heard of Christ’s crucifixion. Staurolite is often called “faery stone” or “faery cross”. Since the first time it was worn, it has been considered a good luck charm as well as a charm that would protect children from evil spirits.
Staurolite is a grounding stone that assists in connecting with other worlds, including the faery realm. It is used by some as a tool to psychically communicate with the animal kingdom.
Staurolite is an aid in discarding destructive habits, stabilising the emotions, and brings a feeling of protection, safety and security.
This is an excellent stone for use in widening one’s vision and awareness of other realms. It opens the inner eye, helps to find lost objects, and increases the connection to other worlds.
Staurolite is used by healers to counter the effects of aging, recover from abusive habits, muscle and blood formation, general well being.
