Spring 23

A very sharp dark Anatase crystal with a bluish color from the classic Norwegian locality of Hardangervidda. In excellent condition and with fine luster on many of the faces. The area that holds these is quite vast but now nearly all of the well-known spots are in a National Park and no collecting has been done for many years. Although this area had some active mines long ago, the Anatase was only found in the occasional Alpine cleft and not in general mining. These crystals have been prized for well over 150 years and are in all great museums.
