Rutile is well known for its habit of forming needle-like inclusions within other minerals, especially Quartz, in the form of long and slender yellow straw-like crystals. These inclusions 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 and gemstone. 

This Rutilated Quartz crystal is awesome to say the least. It’s wonderful to admire these little treasures from Mother Nature. I love how this crystal shines like gold under the sunlight and the needle-like inclusions within the crystal are so cool to look at it. I wish I could just touch them.
