Rutile in Quartz

Specimen # 201125
Mineral: Rutile in Quartz
Location: Cascalho Claim, near Conselheiro Pena, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: 3.7 x 2.7 x 0.8 cm


A cut and polished section of a quartz crystal containing a beautiful lattice of rutile crystals. The rutile crystals have a bright almost-metallic sheen under the lights, and under magnification once can see how intricate and delicate the rutile crystals are, protected within the quartz. A very nice specimen from the John S. White collection.
