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 rutilated quartz, and is used both as a collectors mineral & gemstone. 


This rutilated quartz is so adorable!! I would love to see it wire wrapped onto a necklace!! I love all of the imperfections, but my favorite part would have to be that it is double terminated!! 


Metaphysically, rutile is known for strengthening the energy flow throughout the body. It is also known for facilitating transformations in all areas of life. Rutile is believed to promote strenth and love within oneself as well.
