This is a great piece – there are two main quartz crystals on matrix, each of which has a single brookite crystal running through it, and each brookite crystal has a myriad of tiny, delicate needle-like rutile crystals associated with it. This is certainly visible without magnification in each quartz crystal and looks super with magnification. The quartz crystals are sharp, lustrous and transparent – so much so that they are a little hard to photograph! In excellent condition – there is a small chip in the back of one termination of the large quartz, but it’s not in view as displayed.
The first time I laid eyes on this specimen, I was acquiring it from a family member of the person who mined it. It has been in the John S. White quartz collection since then. It’s a beauty.
