Rutile on Hematite (epitaxial)
Novo Horizonte
Bahia, Brazil
5.2 x 2.2 x .2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $220


A sharp, bright starburst sixling of golden rutile needles sprouting from a shiny metallic Hematite crystal. A clean and clear textbook quality example of Epitaxy, this is from the great find at Novo Horizonte a few years ago. The thin plate-like crystal of Hematite shows very smooth faces on both sides, a few growth structures are also noted. The Rutile is in single hairs and clumped bundles oriented on the twin forms that define these. In remarkable condition, this looks fine from both sides. Much better in person, these are amazing minerals and modern classics.
