Rutile With Quartz
Kapudzyk, Azerbaijan
Miniature, 5.0 x 3.2 x 3.5 cm
This is an approximately 1-inch, 3-dimensional, lustrous, super-sharp rutile crystal perched on matrix! It is a real prize for the size, because of the crystal quality and its balance on matrix. These came out in the late 90s in one small batch, and seem to have gone the way of the dodo since. Haven't seen one this nice in awhile.
