It is much rarer for TiO2 to crystallize into anatase rather than the more common rutile, but both are important sources of the element titanium.
This crystal is approximately 2cm tall x .5 cm wide. You will receive a free 'perky' display box and a label featuring the mineral name and the locale where it was mined.
