Rutilated Quartz
Large Cabinet, 21.3 x 7.3 x 4.0 cm
Aracuai, Minas Gerais, Brazil
This almost pristine, gemmy, light smoky quartz specimen is heavily included by bright golden needles of rutile. It is a huge specimen and you just do not often see large rutilated quartzes around. The crystals are nearly perfect, and the piece is bright and gemmy, much more beautiful in person than the pictures indicate.
