Large Brookite from Pakistan

Posted by Brander Robinson

Brookite is about 6cm x 3.5cm. There is a small amount of white matrix on the back. Front has an area that looks like golden rutile in the lower center of the photo. Seems to be some chipping along one edge but otherwise in nice shape for a large crystal. A value of this specimen would be appreciated. Thanks for any help.

Probably not worth much more than $100.

Hi Brander !

I am from Nausherwani Mines well known for Brookites. I will agree what the Rock Currier said but I will add some information such specimens may worth not more than 30 $ in local market. In international market it worths 70 to 80 $ .

Thanks ,

I'm with Nauroz. It's a poor specimen, John; all it has going for it is an unusual size. If you could get 40 for it retail, take the money and run.
