Rutile (Twinned)
Stubach valley, Hohe Tauern Mts, Salzburg, Austria
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.8 x 2.5 cm
A well-sized matrix specimen hosting at its peak a sharply twinned, very geometric, rutile crystal. The scarce locality, and a superb twinning, make this a very fine European rutile specimen. Matrix pieces are unusual, especially in display quality! Comes with two old labels, shown; and is from an old German collection I am slowly dispersing.
