This is a rather large, well formed, fine, single crystal, of lustrous, translucent, brownish-red, brookite. As slender as this crystal is, it has no damage at all. Only at the base where it was removed from the matrix, is there contact. Beautiful! And, I think, a bargain for the price...brookite is common for the moment due to recent finds in Pakistan, but it will NOT always be the case. This is a large pristine crystal, and imposing by any standard - they just happen to be cheap at the moment.
