Brookite and Quartz
Small Cabinet, 7.9 x 2.6 x 2.4 cm
Magnet Cove, Arkansas, USA
Ex. Ernest Schlichter

A doubly terminated, opaque quartz crystal forms the matrix for several unusually large, lustrous and equant, jet-black brookite crystals. The brookite crystals reach 1 cm across which is very large for the locale. They display phenomenally on the contrasting matrix. This is not the norm for Magnet Cove brookite!
