From the new find of the Fall of 2004. These new Brookite specimens are some of the finest quality "Alpine-type" Brookites in the world. Reminiscent of the finest TRUE ALPINE Brookite specimens from the Italian and Swiss Alps, these crystals are just as sharp, lustrous, gemmy and colorful. This particular specimen features a superb quality, razor-sharp, lustrous, gemmy, fiery red-orange colored Brookite crystal with a classic black "phantom" running the length of the crystal. To top if off, the Brookite is sitting atop gem quality Quartz crystals on matrix. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
