Rutile on Kyanite: Graves Mountain, Lincoln Co., Georgia, USA
Dimensions: 6.5 x 5.0 x 2.5 cm.
This fine specimen features a very nice, isolated 1.7 cm rutile crystal with bright luster and great blocky crystal form on iron-stained kyanite matrix. This highly 3-dimensional specimen displays great from multiple sides and is in excellent condition with exceptional luster for the locality. Rutile crystals of this quality from Graves Mountain are not common, and this is a superb example from this classic American locality which has produced the world’s finest rutile specimens.
