An interesting specimen where the epitaxial Rutile is on the surface of the Quartz. This occurs in three places, on one side of the main crystal and two other places. It is unclear if the Quartz stopped growing at these points or if the Quartz cleaved along these planes. Under close examination, it appears both may have been the case in different places.
Condition: Fairly Good
Flaws: The main Quartz crystal is incomplete on the face of the termination above the face with the Rutile and Hematite.
