Single Dipyramidal Anatase Floater
Single Dipyramidal Anatase Floater from Matskorhæ (Matskorhae), Odda, Hardangervidda, Hordaland, Norway
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description A very sharp, doubly terminated Anatase crystal from the Jaime Bird Collection. This pristine crystal has brilliant luster, is well-striated and is covered in micro Rutile crystals. (The mid-1970s Hamel Mining label states "Tysse" as the locality. Tysse is not a locality for Anatase but a place-name of an area in the Community of Odda close to Hardangervidda where Anatase is found. The label "Tysse" was probably given to keep the very locality secret.) This specimen looks very similar to those from the Matskorhae locality.
Locality Matskorhæ (Matskorhae), Odda, Hardangervidda, Hordaland, Norway
Dimensions 1.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 cm.
Specimen Grade B
