Quartz Enclosing Brookite
Taftan, near Dalbandi, Baluchistan Province, Pakistan
Cabinet, 10.0 x 9.0 x 6.0 cm
This specimen is the largest specimen I have seen of quartz associated with brookite in good quality. It is a pristine, jewel-like, sparkly cluster of quartz that is good on its own merit. Within the cluster, is a 2 cm brookite crystal whose termination is totally enclosed within one of the quartz points in the cluster. You can look right in through the quartz to see it! This is an attractive and unusual specimen.
