40024 RH2302 Pseudobrookite, Magnetite, Aegirine-Augite, Eastern Hill, Mount Anakie, Anakie, City of Greater Geelong, Victoria

Brown pseudobrookite crystals with tiny yellow transparent aegirine-augite crystals. The larger pseudobrookite crystal has a “bend” in it, clearly an abrupt change of growth direction, not rare but also not common at this locality. The smaller crystal is highly reflective. Magnetite is out of view of this photo. Ex Dick Haslam Collection. Width of view 3.5mm. Stack of 60 images.
