Rutile, Hematite
Novo Horizonte, Bahia, Northeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.3 x 4.6 x 2.7 cm
You are now probably familiar with this combination from Brazil of golden, acicular crystals of rutile with platy-metallic hematite. This specimen looks great from both sides. On one side you have this pretty 30-degree burst on two different levels, and on the other, a large, gleaming plate of hematite with rutile between its spokes. A really rich and pretty one!
