Intuition, Manifestation, Courage 

The Rutile Paramorph after Anatase is a true marvel of the mineral world. As a paramorph, this specimen is a pseudomorph with the same composition as the original crystal, caused by a phase transformation. In simpler terms, the crystal structure of the original mineral has been replaced by another mineral with the same chemical composition. 

Paramorphism is a rare occurrence in nature, making specimens like this highly sought after by collectors worldwide. What makes this particular specimen even more special is that it is a floater, meaning that it is fully developed without any contact points with any matrix. This unique phenomenon allows the specimen to be fully intact without any damage, making it even more valuable. 

This Rutile Paramorph after Anatase specimen features an elongated group of silvery-yellow-tan coloured prismatic Anatase crystals with excellent sharpness. These crystals are accented by small metallic golden acicular Rutile crystals epitaxially overgrowing the piece. The combination of these two minerals on the same specimen is extremely rare and makes this piece truly one-of-a-kind. 

These specimens are also part of a very old stock of classic specimens, adding to its historical significance. It is rare to have two Titanium Oxides together on the same piece, making these Rutile Paramorph after Anatase a truly remarkable find for any collector or enthusiast. 

The combination of Anatase and Rutile is believed to have a powerful synergistic effect on spiritual growth and development. It is said to enhance intuition, strengthen the connection to higher realms, and assist in manifesting one's desires. This unique combination is also believed to promote inner strength, courage, and perseverance, making it a popular choice for those seeking to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.
