The crystals of Rutile have grown epitaxially on tabular Hematite / Brazil

Rutile and Hematite.The crystals of Rutile, which are brilliant yellow and have golden reflections, have grown epitaxially on tabular Hematite. The terminations of the Rutile have very well defined faces, which is not so common with this type of specimen.

A fine example of golden Rutile sprays on metalic silver crystals of lustrous Hematite. (a quick glance made me see a bugle bead beaded objet d'art)
