Rutile, Quartz

Specimen # 201117
Mineral: Rutile, Quartz
Location: Adams Farm, Hiddenite, Alexander Co., North Carolina, USA
Size: 4.8 x 2.0 x 1.6 cm


A sharp, lustrous quartz crystal with beautiful little red rutile crystals perched on it, and also included within. There are small hematite crystals included within the quartz also. The rutile crystals are gorgeous under magnification. In excellent condition, one rutile at one side of the group is incomplete. The quartz crystal is also in excellent condition – it formed as a doubly-terminated crystal and the one termination is contacted. A sweet specimen from the John S. White collection.
