Brookite, Quartz
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 2.2 x 1.4 cm
Kharan, Balochistan (Baluchistan), Pakistan
From the find of the Fall of 2004. These 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 few good quality razor-sharp, lustrous, gemmy, fiery red-orange Brookite crystals with classic black "phantoms" running the length of the crystals. To top if off, the Brookites are sitting atop doubly-terminated, multi-crystallized, colorless, sharp lustrous Quartz crystals with slight inclusions of "Byssolite." Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
