Here is a very pretty piece of rutillated quartz in an unusual cut. The name for this material comes from the needles, of the mineral Rutile, that are embedded in the quartz. The needles can be thick or thin, gold-colored or silver-colored, sparse or heavily concentrated. This particular piece has a heavy concentration of thin, gold-colored needles. This stone has a flat back and can be bezel set, prong set, or wire wrapped. It is polished on front and back with a final polish on 60,000 grit diamond.

I can no longer ship stones to China. The Chinese government prohibits the importation of gemstones, and I lost a large order because of this.
