Hematite with Rutile on Adularia – Cavradi Gorge, Sedrun, Tujetsch, Graubünden, Switzerland


Translucent, snow-white chain adularia with highly lustrous, thick-tabular hematite. The sharp-edged hematite is interspersed with the coveted, blood-red rutile. Aesthetic specimen.

Next to localities such as Val Giuv or Göscheneralp, the Cavradi Gorge is certainly one of the most famous in Switzerland, if not the entire Alpine region. In the gorge, the rock is laboriously mined to get to the coveted clefts. Mostly rock crystal and hematite with rutile of the very best quality can be found here. Minerals from the Cavradi Gorge near Sedrun in Graubünden are rightly sought after by collectors and adorn them collections worldwide.
