Comment: Two twin, lustrous anatase crystals artfully attached to the side of a water-clear quartz crystal from Hardangervidda, Norway. A third anatase is nicely attached near the termination. The termination has a minor bruise, which is certainly not detracting, as you can see. Ex Gary Hansen Collection, who traded a small lot of these from the Smithsonian.

Minerals: Anatase (TiO2) Quartz (SiO2)
