A gorgeous group of rutile crystals inside a transparent quartz crystal. These rutile crystals are an intense cinnamon colour with superb lustre. Absolutely beautiful with magnification. The quartz crystal is in excellent condition – the minor irregularities show crystallization texture under magnification. A lovely specimen from the John S. White collection.
