Be sure to look for fairy crosses known as staurolite, the state mineral of Georgia.  Fairy crosses can be found near and around Blue Ridge Georgia and the surrounding areas.

Staurolite is a brownish mineral that can be found as a small rectangular crystals about as big as a dime. Staurolite is found as a single rectangular crystal or it may be attached to another crystal to form a cross or a fairy cross.

Fannin County--along with a few other areas in the Southern Appalachians is one of a very few places in the world where Fairy Crosses are naturally occurring. Rock hounds from around the world love to visit Blue Ridge hoping to find Fairy Crosses.
