Rutile (epitaxial) on Hematite
stock #12.1-013
Novo Horizonte
Bahia, Brazil
3.5 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $200


A modern classic, these star shaped radial rutile specimens are simply fantastic. When first found in Brazil, these were a huge sensation, the best ever seen. This is a good, small miniature that is far less expensive than larger examples, but still has a good impact. With brilliant luster, this specimen is a textbook example of epitaxy. These were rather plentiful from Brazilian dealers 3 years ago but are now getting scarce.
SOLD Rutile ( single crystal with overgrowths))
stock #SOLD 12.1-014
Pedra Preta Pit, Serra das Eguas, Brumado
Bahia, Brazil
3.5 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $0


A deep red prism crystal that is complete, sharp, lustrous and translucent. From a find about 4 years ago, there were not many found. Chipping on edges seen with 10x magnification, but still displays well. The form is unusual too with a central prism that has a series of parallel overgrowths on the sides that are orienting themselves in classic twin law.

A big, doubly terminated crystal from Americas great Rutile locale, Graves Mt. This shows two distinctly different termination forms and has good luster.
