SOLD Brookite on Quartz - classic USA
stock #SOLD 21.1-338
Magnet Cove, Hot Springs County
Arkansas, United States
3.4 x 1.5 x .8 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $0
Late Summer 2021

A sharp and quite lustrous Brookite crystal 1.1 CM across, with textbook perfect form, is perched on a milky Quartz crystal. The Brookite has an unusual blue iridescence on some faces, though it mostly looks black. A classic locality that is well-known for good Brookites that are very different from those well-known from Pakistan. An older specimen collected before 1969. This could be trimmed to be a thumbnail if desired but it is quite nice as is. The wider faces have complex geometric stepped structures well-presented. There is no damage at all.

Several very sharp Brookite crystals up to 1.2 CM scattered on Quartz matrix. The Brookites are the mirror bright metallic black type. A classic older Magnet cove specimen in excellent condition, this is accompanied by a label from The Bradleys (Los Angeles, California) which dates this piece in their stock between 1952-1958. An even earlier collection number is pasted on the specimen back Most of the Quartz crystals on this are sharp and complete, unlike much Magnet Cove Quartz with Brookite which are highly etched.
