Several blue, very nice Anatase crystals on this specimen of mica schist and Quartz. The largest crystal is 5mm but most are 1 to 2mm. There are also yellowish amber blocky orthorhombic crystals to about 0.75mm closely associated with the Anatase. I am not sure what these are. They don't have the forms of garnet. Possibly Parisite. They almost look like Strontiojoaquinite, but I barium minerals have not been reported at this deposit, but of course it is possible. Ex. Fersman with label.
