Rutile on Kyanite with Hematite - vintage Classic
Graves Mt., Lincoln Co.
Georgia, United States
8.2 x 6.7 x 5.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $1350
new year 2021

A superb vintage specimen. A jewel-like Rutile crystal (twinned) is set in a cluster of Kyanite blades that are coated with reddish Hematite and a bit of Goethite. This comes with an F. Pisani label, the famed Paris mineral dealer, vintage 1870's but possibly much older. The rutile is brilliantly lustrous and perfect on all sides. The remarkable Rutile of Graves Mountain was highly desired by European collectors of the late 1800's who had the means to purchase the very best specimens. It is hard to appreciate the brilliant luster of this Rutile in photos, this is far beyond any typical specimen from here.
