Rutilated Quartz is found predominantly in Brazil and is characterized by its hair or needle like inclusions within the Quartz.  There are a large number of varieties of this with the needles being coloured either  silver, gold, copper, or black.  The density or positioning is always different so no two pieces are the same. Sometimes if the needles are in the right combination of density and location they can form a cats-eye effect. Depending on its transparency it can be either cabbed or faceted.

300 gram lots of Rutilated Quartz from Bahia in Brazil. Each lot is sold by weight and will vary in sizes, shapes and quantity. The photos are representative of what you will receive. These are cabbing grade as opposed to faceting grade so the material will vary from translucent to some areas of transparency. This variety of Rutilated Quartz has copper or orange tone needle rutile which is different from the golden rutile. Lots of material so you should get some nice pieces. Remember that where the rutile breaks the surface its going to create a pit so try and position so off to the side if you can.
