Striated Anatase crystal (macro-photogrammetry)3D Model
Locality: Binn Valley, Switzerland
Size: hFOV of the main crystal is ~ 3 mm
Description: Anatase is polymorphous (the same chemical formula, but different crystal system) with the more common Rutile, as well as Brookite. The name Anatase is derived from the Greek word ‘anatasis’, which means elongation, in allusion to its elongated crystal habit (in relation to Rutile).
This macro 3D scan is from Gneiss sample with anatase crystals on the matrix.
