Haus Rappoltstein vein, Neuenberg, Ste Marie-aux-Mines, Colmar-Ribeauvillé, Haut-Rhin, Grand Est, France

Field of View: 1 mm

To reveal these crystals the treatment of the specimens must dissolve the calcite (HCl treatment). The matrix is greyish dotted with small translucent quartz and löllingite (and sometimes anatase).

Thin tabular Anatase crystals with quartz. Very little löllingite are on the specimen but very small, under the biggest anatase crystal.
This specimen was soaked in acid to dissolve calcite and update the crystals of anatase.
The crystallization of anatase is probably due to the titanium mobilization of rutile contained in the gneiss.
This minerals wasn't seen by mineralogist in the earlier 80's...! But only during 1990-2000's under the scope...!
