Description

A solid matrix specimen with one side covered with a dozen well-shaped anatase crystals. The crystals are dark blue, very lustrous and double terminated. In most cases the terminations show the basal pinacoid instead of sharp 'chisel-shaped' form. The contrast with the white matrix is dramatic and makes very good photographic subjects.
Unusually large and rich specimen for the locality.

Former collection Bernardoni (Italy).
