Rutilated Quartz - Novo Horizonte, Brazil.
Novo Horizonte is a famous locality for Rutile inclusions in Quartz, often associated with Hematite. This specimen in particular is quite large, especially for having only natural faces. Many of the Quartz which come from here are polished to better show the Rutile but in this specimen that is unnecessary. This piece is highly lustrous and gemmy and shows its Rutile with an aesthetic flare. The specimen is also free of damage which is also not entirely common from here. Overall of the hundreds of specimens we've carried from Novo Horizonte, this is one of my favorites.
