Quartz, Rutile
Ibitiara, Bahia, Northeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 8.5 x 4.7 x 3.9 cm
A very unusual DOUBLY-TERMINATED crystal of the prized quartz variety from Brazil that is shot through with golden crystals of rutile. This one looks for all the world as though it has a lock of golden blonde hair trapped inside! The larger crystal has terminated around a smaller crystal, which then extends further to its own termination. The smaller crystal is richly included with rutile crystals just as the larger one is.
