S18763 - Rutile - $750
Diamantina, Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Overall Size: 3 x 2.3 cm
An excellent specimen of rutile exhibiting sharp, highly striated reticulation of compacted thumbnail size, with a kickstand side crystal. The metallic sheen here is spectacular and typical of material that came out in the late 1990s, with that added bit of luster. Better in person.
