Hematite, Rutile
Novo Horizonte, Bahia, Northeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 5.2 x 5.0 cm
You have seen mostly small specimens of this combination from Brazil, with perhaps a small platy crystal of hematite with needles of rutile shooting from it. This one is a completely different style, a series of LARGE platy hematite crystals, with the rutile embedded in their jagged peripheries. They are stacked in a really attractive design, staggered back 3-dimensionally. This is a wonderful small cab of this combo and a great example of Brazilian hematite of this style, which you just do not see out there in this size and richness.
