Rutilated quartz is a transparent quartz with needle-like rutile (natural form of titanium dioxide) in it. Rutile is a birthstone for the Zodiac signs of Gemini and Taurus. It is thought to be a healing crystal. An outstanding gemstone!! The more rutile, the more desirable. Because the rutile is formed naturally, each stone varies from the next. I have selected two stones that are similar in color and rutilation so that they could be designed as a pair if wanted. The picture shows the stone from the top.
Regular faceted back, ready to mount like any other faceted stone. (This is not a cabochon or flat backed.)
Create a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.
Each of the gemstones I have listed are shipped in their own 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" specimen box with tag (giving specs on gemstone type, size, and style of cut) attached. This protects the gemstone in transit.
