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.

Large piece of rutilated quartz from Bahia in Brazil. This weighs 452 grams and measures 140 mm long by 70 wide by 45 mm deep. Has lots of golden rutile needles thoughout the entire piece and could be used for either cabbing or faceting. There are clouds and areas of gas bubbles as well so not completely water clear. if it was would be costing 1000 plus. Also has original crystal faces and shape if you wanted to keep as a crystal specimen. Should get lots of value out of this and some really large pieces obviously.
