“The Legend of the Fairy Cross”

fairy crossAfter Apache Tears, (those of you who have read my book, know why this stone is so special to me), Fairy Cross is the most poignant stone to my heart.
Fairy Cross, also known as Staurolite, has a unique formation, a perfect Roman cross.
Legend believes it was created as the tears of heartbroken fairies fell to the ground when they learned the news of Jesus’ crucifixion.
Native American people, in particular the Cherokee, have a much similar legend passed through their history. Cherokee revere these stones, there is a beautiful collection of them at the Cherokee Museum.
Throughout history, several notable people have carried Fairy Stones. They are believed to be a talisman of good fortune. A few United States Presidents are said to have carried them.
Whether you believe in the legends or not, one cannot deny the beauty of this gemstone formation. Even more beautiful and poignant, today, Good Friday.

Blessings this Good Friday and Easter Sunday,
Shirl
