Rutilated Quartz is clear quartz is what looks like needle thin strands running through it frozen in time. The rutile is the angel hair-like threads composed of titanium dioxide and iron and sometimes tourmaline. The amount of iron will determine the colour of the inclusions which can range from gold to a coppery red and black.
As it is a combination stone it carries the properties and energies of both quartz and rutile. The clear quartz is a natural ‘Master Healer’ and amplifies the qualities of all other stones which makes rutile quartz such a powerful catalyst.
Rutile quartz is highly sought after because it is rare and exerts a stronger vibration than most stones and crystals. It awakens your entire energy system and amplifies both positive and negative vibrations. The negative enhancement allows for opportunity, perspective and growth. Rutile Quartz is magical in the awakening it provides and connection to the divine but is to be respected for the rate at which it can work. If you aren’t ready for the speed of enhancement be sure to keep a grounding or black stone near to manage the energies.
Because the quartz encases the rutile it is strong enough to be made into pendants and worn as jewelry. Be mindful of its energy if worn or used without another stone to keep you balanced.
Physically it is said to help with tissue regeneration and asthma.
