Rutilated quartz

Rutilated quartz is a very special and rare form of quartz.

Rutilated quartz contains rutile in form of needle like inclusions. Rutile is crystalline form of titanium dioxide.

The color of rutile, found as inclusion, is usually a bright golden color. The color of rutile inclusions are sometimes other than golden, like black.

Rutilated quartz is much more precious than normal clear quartz and is one of the favorite gemstones used in jewelry.

Sometimes rutile inclusions are found inside of smoky quartz.
