Rutile from New England is almost unheard of-yet there is one small prospect on private property in north-central Vermont that produces this titanium mineral.  The specimen features sharp, metallic silvery reddish-brown crystals to 1" long.  The crystals are very sharply formed, with bright luster, smooth faces, and crisp edges and joins, and are set in a matrix of milky quartz and mica schist.
