Item number: 24340

The top of this piece of pyrophyllite has a number of very nice dark red-brown, lustrous rutile crystals exposed. The rutile crystals are all partially embedded in the radiating aggregates of creamy-white pyrophyllite. Nice! The biggest crystal is 24mm in length with a number of smaller, very sharp crystals. A couple ore bruised but most very nice. Displays well, too! s
