Rutilated Quartz (multi) Beads
The rutile inclusions in this gemstone are sometimes called “Venus hair”, as the fine needles resemble the golden locks of a goddess!
Our rutilated quartz (multi) gemstone beads are natural quartz in an earthy rainbow of translucent greens, golds, and reds, with inclusions of tiny needles of yellow to reddish brown rutile.
Quartz often contains inclusions of other minerals. Needle-like inclusions of rutile produce this multi-color rutilated quartz. Rutile is a golden yellow to reddish brown mineral that is composed primarily of titanium dioxide.
