Description:From the find of the Fall of 2004. These Brookite specimens are some of the finest quality "Alpine-type" Brookites in the world. Reminiscent of the finest TRUE ALPINE Brookite specimens from the Alps, these crystals are just as sharp, lustrous, gemmy and colorful. If these specimens from Pakistan were found in the Italy or Switzerland, they would be worth thousands (!) of dollars apiece to knowledgable collectors (if you could even get a European collector to part with one). That's how good they are. This particular specimen features a full 1.0 cm, good quality, razor-sharp, lustrous, GEM/gemmy, deep flame red-orange color Brookite crystal with a classic black "phantom" inside aesthetically sitting on matrix. Matrix Brookite specimens are exceedingly difficult to obtain because the crystals don't stay on the matrix during collecting underground. This a wonderful and colorful specimen of a species that is not often seen in fine quality crystals like this. Priced at $1,000.
