Green Tourmilated Quartz Beads
While most varieties of transparent quartz are valued more when they lack inclusions, some varieties are valued chiefly because of inclusions. Green tourmilated quartz is one of these varieties. Rutilated quartz is a more well-known stone that is very similar to tourmilated quartz. Rutilated quartz is transparent rock crystal with golden needles of rutile arrayed in patterns. The inclusions are sometimes called Venus hair. Tourmilated quartz has black or dark green tourmaline crystals instead of golden rutile crystals.
