5 x 4.2 x 3.2 cm. This rare specimen features an exquisitely twinned 3 cm rutile crystal perched atop contrasting matrix and comes from the classic California locality.

It comes from the Don Boydston Collection - Don himself was a noted California collector whose collection recently surfaced after disappearing for a number of decades.
