RM2673   Rutile with kyanite, hematite-goethite

Graves Mountain, Lincoln Co., Georgia, United States of America

These specimens are very rare in this classic locality for the rutile. The matrix is formed by interpenetrating tabular kyanite crystals coated with iridescent shades of 'turgite', a term used for the mixture of goethite and hematite. What is remarkable is a group of rutile crystals, very bright and well defined. A piece with history.

Size: 5.6 x 4.6 x 3.9 cm.
Main crystal: 1 cm.
Found in ± 1977.
