Graves Mountain, Lincoln Co., Georgia, USA
Miniature, 4.4 x 3.6 x 3.5 cm
A superb miniature Georgia rutile by any standard, historic or not, that happens to have ended up already in Europe by the 1890s. The accompanying label from the collection of Dr. Carl Riemann dates the piece to the 1880s-1890s. The crystal is intensely lustrous, has the rare and desirable red flash when lit strongly, and is complete all around. Also, note the sharply visible twinning atop the termination. Ex. Helmut Bruckner and Dr. Carl Riemann Collections.
