BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Massive Himalayan Quartz Cluster Specimen with Golden Rutile, Chlorite, Anatase — Broker of some of the world's most noteworthy gemstones and minerals, Significant Stones is proud to announce that is has acquired an extraordinarily rare, extremely large (50kg), Himalayan quartz cluster with many perfect, large double terminated points, all of which are literally filled with shimmering golden/copper rutile (titanium dioxide), vibrant bright green chlorite and sprinkled with sparkling anatase. The stunningly bright chlorite adorns this specimen on both the inside and outside, and contrasts with the magical array of golden and copper colored rutile inclusions that fill each large crystal. This is by far the most significant mineralogical wonder to be brought from the heights of this remote Himalayan region.
Absolutely striking in beauty and form, this specimen is an outstanding example of the exceptional clarity found in the high altitude, Alpine type environment of the Kinnaur district in the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India where it was discovered.
This somewhat unknown locale is inaccessible to anything but the most rudimentary hand tools for mining. No explosives, or heavy machinery is ever used when mining the superb, optically clear geological rarities previously undocumented in these remote regions of India or Nepal.
Gem and Mineral expert and Owner of Significant Stones, Gillian Caine has said that "In 30 years of mineral collecting and brokering, I have never seen a cluster this large, with so much incredible, energetic golden/copper rutile ~ and certainly not from this region. There is nothing that compares in rarity, size, beauty, and energy! The Pinnacle! "
Jim Wickard of Belo Horizonte has been importing and working with Brazilian Rutile since the 1970's and has said, "A piece like this comes along once in a lifetime. It has a wonderful shape and clarity, with most extraordinary rutile inclusions. It is possibly the finest specimen that I have ever seen."
Significant Stones is offering this incredibly rare specimen for sale to the right collector. The immediate availability of this once in a lifetime specimen will allow a very lucky person or institution to own one of the rarest specimens on Earth.
