I am always amazed by the way the rutile crystals emerge directly out of silvery hematite crystals. This formation, referred to as epitaxy, is unusual in the mineral world, and even rarer when it produces such dramatic, exciting, eye-catching specimens. The rutile crystals are a flashy, metallic, golden color, and reach lengths of over 3/4", which is quite good for this material.
