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 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-sized (1.7 cm), sharp, lustrous, fiery orange-red color blade of Brookite with Quartz on matrix. The Brookite is a little rough on the base, but still good sized and with great color for the material. A wonderful and colorful specimen of a species that is not often seen in fine quality crystals like this.
