Some earth-based faiths believe that gemstones contain certain spiritual and healing properties. In this arena, rutilated quartz is believes to bring forth one’s personal strengths, empowers originality, and helps one to related to others. It is also believed to relieve feelings of loneliness and depression.

Rutilated Quartz description

Many different minerals can form as inclusions within quartz. One of the most important varieties of included quartz for gem use is rutilated quartz. Rutilated quartz usually occurs as rutilated rock crystal, rutilated smoky quartz or rutilated milky quartz. Rutilated quartz forms in quartz veins, usually with milky quartz bordering the vein with quartz crystals growing in toward the center, growing around and enveloping the rutile crystals traversing the vein. Natural radiation from radioactive elements or adjacent radioactive rocks can cause rutilated rock crystal to assume a brown to gray color, known as rutilated smoky quartz.

Rutilated Quartz in jewelry

In our store Silverrush2000.com we have both rutilated quartz and tourmalinated quartz. Quartz that has "needles", rutiles or visible inclusions that look red or brown is commonly referred to as rutilated quartz; quartz that has black "needles" of tourmaline is usually referred to as tourmalinated quartz. Jewelry using both forms of quartz, rutilated and tourmalinated as pendants, rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets can be found on our page.

Occurrence

Rutilated quartz is mined in many countries, including the United States, Australia, Norway and Brazil.
