Item 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 Italian and Swiss 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 good quality, razor-sharp, lustrous, gemmy, fiery red-orange color Brookite crystals with a classic black "phantom" running the length of the crystal. To top if off, the Brookite is sitting on colorlesss, sharp lustrous Quartz crystals on matrix.
