Good picture, Julie.
Those last few pics of Scott's kind of put a halt to the anatase pics.
Pretty hard to top that! Shocked
But I blew the dust off a box lately and found a couple pretty pieces inside worth taking a few pics of.
2 pics each, front and back, of 2 different specimens.

Here are 2 of my most recent finds in an alpine fissure that I’ve been working in the Uwharries. I’ve pulled around 40 other large crystals from this same fissure and countless small crystals and clusters. And there are definitely plenty more to be extracted. The further I dig, the nicer they seem to be getting.

Here is a picture of the one on the left in situ. As you can see there are man more crystals surrounding it. I feel like I could pull out larger clusters if I could just pressure wash them out. The clay is very hard and the sickening crunching sound of fracturing crystals is unfortunately common at this locale.

Wow very nice, usually when I get to the hard crunchy clay I like to use long pry bars with handles to remove the excess clay around the crystals. Good luck. Thanks for the photos.
