Mention Graves Mountain in Lincoln County, Georgia, USA to any mineral collector and they have just one thought, magnificent Rutile! What a locality this is and what an amazing experience it must have been collecting in the large open pit. The economic product was kyanite but, based upon the number, quality and diversity of Rutile crystals it has produced gives the impression it should have been a titanium mine! This superb complete Rutile crystal is double terminated with no apparent point of attachment, indicating it is a floater. The opaque, metallic black faces often display subtle yet varied grown patterns and overall appears like a truncated squat scalenohedral crystal of almost 4 cm long each dimension.
