OKI-450    Rutile     Rist Mine, Hiddenite, Alexander Co., North Carolina.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain Collection.  Prev. Dr. George Robinson.  Circ. 1973.  An exceptionally fine rutile crystal with impeccable form.  This 2.1 x 1.1 x .8 cm beauty is a single primary crystal with a tiny amount of a second crystal (showing the twinning that is present ) near the base.  This small crystal has a chip, but I consider this a very minor issue given the high quality of the large primary crystal.  The color is a rich metallic red and there is minor translucence.  A fine specimen from a very famous mine.  390$








OKB-683   Quartz (mult-colored)   Lincoln Co., North Carolina.  Here is a real classic at a fantastic price for the first person to grab it up.  Smoky and amethyst tints throughout these crystals.  This dome is 15 cm in diameter with biggest crystals being about 6 cm.  Minor internal cracking appears to be damage in the photo but that is not the case.  Backside hase two chipped crystals.  Great piece at a fantastic price.  260$
