Description

Specimen featuring dark red, lustrous metallic rutile crystals on a drusy matrix with white quartz crystals lining the vugs.

Comes with very old printed A. Krantz label dated 1850 - 1870. "Titaneisenerz" is an old german synonym for ilmenite or pseudorutile. Because of the crystal shape and color I would tend to rutile.
