Information about Rutilated Quartz

Quartz is the most common mineral on Earth. It is found in a variety of geological environments and is a common component of almost every rock type.

It constitutes 12% of the earth’s crust, occurring in a wide variety of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. It is also the most extensive in terms of variety and colour.

Rutilated quartz is a type of quartz with needle like mineral suspended inside it. These minerals can be reddish in colour, which is what rutile means in its Latin origin, or they may be golden, silvery, or on very rare occasions, even greenish.

It is primarily found in Brazil and India – while there are several other locations worldwide, they produce an extremely small amount by comparison.

It is almost always sold polished, to show off the beautiful interior – sometimes cut into cabochons or pendants, or tumble polished.

It should not be confused with Tourmalinated Quartz, which is similar in appearance but with black inclusions of Tourmaline.
