Description of Mineral Specimen for sale No. 77659:

Mineral Species: Rutile in Pyrophyllite.
Location of origin: Champion Mine, 6 km WSW of White Mountain Peak, White Mountains, Mono County, California.
Description: Many lustrous red-black rutile crystals on tan-colored pyrophyllite. The rutile crystals formed first, and were then surrounded by the pyrophyllite. When the formation went through tectonic deformation, the rutile crystals were fractured, but frozen in the pyrophyllite, like the parts of a jigsaw puzzle. With strong illumination the rutile crystals exhibit red internal translucency. The specimen was extracted from solid rock, not from a cavity, resulting in minor surface imperfections where the surrounding matrix was removed. Ex. Philip C. Evanoff (1915-2018) Collection #4511.
Overall size: 5x3x2.5 cm.
Size of individual crystals: 3-16 mm
Price: $225 (plus shipping).
