A stunning cluster of red, reticulated, twinned rutile crystals forming a geometric lattice. This is classic for the location, but rarely seen in such a perfect specimen, and less jumbly than most. Because of the somewhat isolated and larger central crystal, this has a real form and style to it, instead of the usual clusters where all are the same size.
