Gwindel Quartz & Rutile

Alchuri, Shigar District, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan

This specimen is one of a kind. Beside the fact that the gwindel itself is water-clear and closed, which is rather scarce in Pakistan, this one shows some thin rutile inclusions (see picture 3). Combination between a gwindel and another mineral is extremely rare, even more if this mineral is an inclusion. Some rare rutilated gwindels were also found in Brazil. The gwindel itself is very lustrous but unfortunately shows some damages on one side (left side on the first picture. Size : 62 mm x 55 mm x 50 mm

Ref. GW025 – 490€
