This is the craziest one of these we've ever seen! It's hard to get good rutile-hematite-quartz combos, but this one knocks it out of the ball park. At the bottom we have several water-clear, super-lustrous quartz crystals that have some rutile inside them. But then running along the crest of the quartz ridgeline is a stack of hematite discs which are radiating golden rutile hairs. It's incredible! It looks like a caterpillar crawling along the quartz. 

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base. We recommend local pickup, but we can ship it as well. During shipment it should be expected that some of the fine rutile hairs will break off - this is normal. We will do our best to pack the specimen securely to minimize contact with the rutile, but some loss is to be expected.
