- Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brazil
- Miniature, 4.2 x 1.1 x 0.8 cm
A very large (up to 1 cm thick!) crystal with rutile's classic high luster, deep red color, and striated sides. The major termination is good, but not perfect. Brazilian rutiles of this size and quality are simply not that common, even though lesser pieces are very common.
