Brookite on Quartz

$700.00   €682  £580.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC20176
A delightful single terminated Brookite crystal emerges from one prism face of a glassy, part Quartz crystal whose only known provenance is Switzerland. The Brookite crystal measures 1.3 (wide) x 1.0 (high) x 0.1 cm (deep) and is a translucent, mid clove-brown with internal crazing. The termination is perfect, as is one side edge, with the opposite edge partly missing. Although the matrix is only a part crystal of Quartz, it is nonetheless attractive, with a good termination, stepped prism faces and a slight degree of smokiness.
