Brookite, Rutile, Quartz
Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 5.4 x 3.6 cm
Taftan, Chagai District, Balochistan (Baluchistan), Pakistan
A striking, sharply terminated, water-clear quartz crystal enclosing a forest of highly lustrous, star-shaped to jackstraw, rutile needles and partially enclosing a large, 2.3, clove-brown brookite blade on the left side of the quartz crystal. The green chlorite in the back of the quartz crystal is a very nice accent. This is an excellent quartz crystal with two included species from an uncommon Pakistan locale - Taftan in Baluchistan.
