Rutilated Quartz is unique. Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals found on earth, but Rutilated Quartz is a varitey of Quartz in which long needle-like forms of rutile are created naturally within the Quartz. These rutile enclosures encased in the mineral resemble colorful fibers. One of the most distinctive features of Rutilated Quartz is that no two stones are ever exactly alike; each stone is unique and special. This kind of quartz stone is said to refract more light than any other mineral.
To add to the uniqueness of this ring, the entire frame is made by hand, using the wire-wrapping technique. It is a work of art, and an attention getter when worn on your hand. And what's better? Rutilated Quartz is said to slow down the aging process and aid in healing. Can I have a bigger stone then please??
