Anatase, Quartz
Hardangervidda, Hordaland, Norway
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 5.6 x 3.1 cm
Ex. Ed Ruggiero
A CLASSIC: razor-sharp crystals of anatase on gemmy quartz crystals, from Norway. The focus is on the perfect 0.7-cm crystal right on the side face of the large, gemmy quartz crystal. Not many of these pop up on the market anymore, even out of collections (since they long since stopped being mined). I don't recall seeing a single one for sale at the last Tucson show with any dealer, including all the hotel and Main Show dealers, though of course they do occasionally turn up here and there. ex Ruggiero collection 6.8 x 5.6 x 3.1cm
