ID: CC21912
Although many mineral species were found at the quarry on Graves Mountain, it is Rutile for which it is rightly famous.  This excellent large miniature divides into two distinct halves, a lower matrix of granular and massive burgundy black Rutile capped with a 3.3 x 3.6 x 3.3 cm lustrous twinned Rutile crystal.  The back of the crystal is missing, but the display face exhibits four vertical prism faces and is terminated with a clearly defined re-entrant angle between faces delineating the twinning plane.  The termination exhibits chevroned growth patterns and all complete faces have a mirror-like texture and lustre.  A delightful Rutile from Graves Mountain.
