Product Description

Gemstone Cabochon

Red Rutilated Quartz

Rutile is a mineral, which often forms needle-like crystal inclusions (see description below) inside quartz, that look like small bars of imbedded gold, red or black.

***Because of the way rutile forms inside the quartz, it can be a difficult stone to attain a smooth surface without pits. Rutilated quartz is unique because it is more highly valued for its inclusions.

Rectangular in shape

This gem is gorgeous!! It would make a very special piece of jewelry. But I am partial to rutile quartz.

Approximately 22x17mm and 6mm high.

***This gem has inclusions.

***Inclusions are characteristics which are inside a stone or that extend to the inside from the surface. These include:

- Clouds- hazy areas in a stone
- Needles- long thin inclusions, also called growth tubes
- Cracks- also called fractures, breaks or feathers. Straight flat cracks are called cleavages.
- Halos- circular fractures
- Growth or Color Zoning- uneven color distribution in a stone
- Cavities- holes or indentations extending from the surface into the stone
- Chips- notches or chips

Inclusions are entirely normal within gemstones and most do not affect the structural integrity of the stone.
