Rutile is well known for its habit of forming needle-like inclusions within other minerals, especially Quartz, in the form of long & slender yellow straw-like crystals. These inclusion can range from scattered needles to dense parallel fibers within a host mineral. This combination is known as Rutilates Quartz, and is used both as a collectors mineral & gemstone.
