Searach for for lucky fairystones, which are said to be "tears of angels" at Fairy Stone Park. The stones are Staurolite and have a natural cross shape. They are found only in rocks that have been subject to great heat and pressure such as was found millions of years ago in the geological history of the formation of the Allegheny Mountains.  While various formations of fairy stones may be found around the world, nowhere are they more perfectly cross-shaped or abundant that in the area in and around Fairy Stone State Park. The park is also known for its 168-acre lake adjoining Philpott Reservoir and its sandy beach.
