Rutilated Quartz

Rutile - This mineral is familiar to many as the pale golden acicular crystal trapped inside crystal quartz. When not enclosed in quartz, it is usually darker in colour, yellowish or reddish brown, dark brown or black. It forms striated prismatic crystals and massive aggregates. Twins are very common and may be geniculate (knee-shaped), cyclic, or reticulated (net-like).

Rutilated Quartz is considered to intensify the power of the quartz crystal.
