Cabinet, 9.6 x 5.8 x 4.8 cm
Four lustrous and striated anatase crystals to 1.1 are set on either side of the very narrow crest on this specimen from the Ed David Collection. The feldspar matrix is generously covered with two generations of quartz crystals, up to 3.7 cm long. The side with the least quartz coverage holds a 1.0 cm pair of crossed, doubly-terminated quartz crystals and a 6-7 mm brookite blade.
