BULK BUY: Rutilated Quartz Faceted Nugget Beads 7x9-7x10mm Grey/Black 2 Strands x 7 Beads Handcut BB-SR1405
Rutilated Quartz is a form of clear Quartz that is characterized by inclusions that are hairlike growths. These 'rutile' inclusions range from thin, sparse, and parallel, to thick, dense, and crisscrossed, and everything in-between. Each Rutilated Quartz Gemstone is unique with its pattern of Rutile inclusions. Rutiles are formed from a titanium dioxide mineral, and sometimes contains large quantities of iron oxide. When the iron oxide content is high, the Rutilated Quartz may have needles of gold and red in it, and when the content is lower, it may have a darker, even almost black colour.
