2" RUTILE SUNBURST Shiny Golden Crystals Epitaxial on HEMATITE Brazil for sale
Availability: In Stock
The golden rutile on this specimen appears to grow directly out of the silver gray hematite in the middle - a formation called epitaxial growth. The effect this creates is similar to rays of sunshine streaming out from behind a dark cloud, and both the specimen and the sunburst are equally magnificent. The rutile needles have a thin, elongated, needle-like acicular habit, while the hematite has a flat, platy surface. This superb specimen has no noticeable damage.
