Description
A solitary, sharp, lustrous, gemmy, "sword" of Brookite measuring 1.0 cm sits atop the underlying matrix to create a showy miniature specimen of this now classic material from Pakistan. The crystal itself has a bit of roughness along the prism, but it's still good quality with a beautiful orange color and contrasting black "phantoms" when backlit. A few smaller accessory Brookites and a handful of transparent colorless Quartz crystals really round out the piece.
