Rutile, Hematite
Novo Horizonte, Bahia, Northeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.1 x 3.6 x 2.5 cm
Aesthetic and beautiful starbursts of amazingly lustrous, golden rutile blades and needles epitaxial on mirror-bright to matte-finish, black hematite crystals from a recent find at Novo Horizonte, Brazil. The uneven starburst really adds character to this fine piece, which looks great from both sides.
