This is a very nice rutile from Graves Mountain! It consists of one major and a couple of minor rutiles in a limonite-quartz-kyanite matrix. The main rutile measures 55 x 32 mm, and is a lustrous black V-twin. Nice matrix rutiles from this location are getting harder and harder to come by. For a great summary of this famous locality, see Mineralogical Record, Volume 16, Number 6 (November - December, 1985), pages 443-458.
