A Throwin Stones classic! Combination specimens such as this, featuring needle-like rutile crystals and platy black hematite are some of the most exciting finds on the market. Both of these minerals are metallic oxides, and have bright and shiny luster to go along with the impactful crystal display. The architecture of this piece is simply mind boggling, with divergent sprays of golden rutile needles. The resemblance to a star-like burst is unquestionable! This small cabinet piece is a top example for the find, and much sharper than many others.
