#2596 Baddeleyite Chlorite Schist Knob Occurrence, Santa Rita Peak, New Idria Mining District San Benito Co. California USA (2004) FOV:3.6 mm

Photographing specimens under the ‘scope is like mineral collecting. You never know what you will find regardless of the specimen label.

Purchased from an old NE collection in 2004. Interesting, mindat has no images for Baddeleyite from California. I’m 85% convinced the lower clear crystal is indeed Baddeleyite. Form and striations match, could be titanite though.
