Brookite, the unusual orthorhombic polymorph of TiO2, reaches its zenith at the Bulochi locality in Pakistan's Astor District. This is an exceptional example with a super-sharp, gemmy, elongated brookite crystal measuring ~4 cm long on quartz crystal matrix. For the species, this is about as good as it gets. Stunning aesthetics and crystal quality for this mineral that usually occurs as small, fairly plain black crystals. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
