Here's a very important old-time specimen, a 1970's classic RUTILE crystal from Graves Mountain in Lincolnton, Lincoln County, Georgia. Large, top quality single rutile crystals from this long-closed mine are quite scarce on the market today. Even though the mine is opened a few days a year for collecting (using hand tools only), no one has found specimens as large or as fine as this one. Graves Mountain is considered by many to have produced the world's finest rutile crystals, and specimens from the site are present in many fine museums and important collections. I purchased this specimen at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral Show from a Georgia fossil dealer who had just a few nice crystals.
