Rutilated Quartz (Floater)
Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 5.5 x 5.1 cm
Ibitiara, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Ex. Richard Hauck

An exceptional and rare CLUSTER of rutilated quartzes - so often found in singles or in damaged and unwieldy clunky clusters. This one, though, is among the brightest, showiest examples I have seen AND is a good size for the collector (as Sensel agreed with, writing "exceptional" on his label when he appraised the collection in 1990). This piece is nearly pristine, with just a few small "kisses" or dings on some crystal tips....but they go unnoticed amoidst the crazy geometry of the rutile inclusions and the luster, unless you look very closely. Especially when backlit, the piece glows with color. I am not normally big on these, but this one is very special and dramatic! I have seldom seen a cluster of this material I love, perhaps just a few pieces in the last twnty years? From the Sensel, Dr. Eugene collection.
