Novo Horizonte, Bahia, Brazil
Transparent, colorless quartz highlights the golden rutile inclusions running throughout the crystal. A very nice starburst of golden rutile radiating outward from a small black hematite inclusion (epitaxial growth) is complete and easily seen by the clarity of the crystal. The quartz is doubly terminated, but one of the prism sides was removed from the host rock. This would be a great piece for wire wrapping as well.
