Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 4.1 x 2.6 cm
Champion Mine, White Mountains, Mono County, California
Ex. Lawrence H. Conklin

An unusually large, very significant rutile crystal from the old Champion Mine, in the mountains of Northern California. The crystal has minor edge wear on a few edges, and is contacted in back, but nevertheless displays magnificently and is both large and extremely well colored for this locality. It is a major specimen, comparable only to a few others I know of from the place. Old material, seldom seen today. From the Larry Conklin collection
