ID: CC21567
A 3 mm clove brown Anatase crystal nestles in a small cleft next to colourless Quartz crystals and several micro-crystals of white Albite Feldspar.  This is typical Alpine-style mineralisation from Twll Maen Grisial near to the village of Prenteg in Gwynedd, Wales; the type locality for Brookite.  The Anatase is equant and stubby, with sharp faces and subtly striated faces.  The right hand side of the crystal has a curious sawtooth habit and from many angles displays a metallic blue lustre.  A lovely small miniature which was once in Richard Barstow’s personal collection and comes with one of his much sought after white labels.
