Clear Quartz with inclusions of reddish golden colored Rutile from an obscure location in the southern Urals which encompasses a wide area. There are tiny bits of Hematite from which the Rutile grew epitaxially. Along one side of the main crystal, the Rutile becomes very dense and the color becomes an opaque, dark, reddish brown.

Condition: Good

Flaws: One face of the termination has conchoidal like surfaces. I am uncertain whether this is a fracture surface or an odd growth pattern. This surface is not visible when the specimen is viewed from the opposing side.
