Very well crystallized, lustrous, black, terminated Anatase, combined with white Albite and Quartz

Hardangervidda, Vestland, Norway

Hardangervidda is located in the western part of Norway. If you go from the sea and reach the top, you will come to a huge plateau, called Hardangervidda, that covers 3 counties.

The western part is mostly know for its magnificent mountains and fjords. It is even mentioned in my favorite book "Hitch hikers guide to the gallaxy". The picture is taken from a placed called Trolltunga (Tounge of the Troll). Because of its wonderful nature, most of Hardangervidda is declared a National Park.

Be aware that some of the localities of Anatase and Quartz are located inside the Hardangervidda National Park, and collecting and removing minerals is strictly forbidden there.
