Information about Tourmalinated 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.

This stone is similar to Rutilated Quartz – instead of the golden needles of Rutile, there are darker needles of Tourmaline – they are typically black, but there are samples with green or even blue needle crystals, although these are much rarer.

It is sometimes known as ‘Tourmaline in Quartz’ or ‘Tourmilated Quartz’.

It is almost always sold polished or tumbled, to show off the interesting interior – it is sometimes cut into cabochons or pendants, but rarely faceted, as larger pieces are better to show off the inside.
