Rutile on Hematite - epitaxial twins
Novo Horizonte
Bahia, Brazil
3.2 x 2.4 x 2.1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $190


Intergrown stars of golden Rutile needles radiating from Hematite crystals. A classic of mineralogy, the six rayed stars oriented on flat Hematite crystals shows the twinning and epitaxy perfectly. Delicate but elegantly composed, these are one of the most amazing of Brazilian minerals. This is a choice three dimensional piece that looks fine from any angle.
