The lovely markings found in rutilated quartz beads come from gold-colored, hairlike inclusions of rutile (a titanium dioxide mineral). Embedded in these semi precious beads, the rutile look like frozen meteor showers. Our multicolor rutilated quartz beads offer strands of mixed colors of quartz, all with rutile inclusions.
Rutilated quartz is sometimes considered a link between the crown and root chakras. It is said to enhance physical and mental balance and stability, self-reliance, and finding one's way. Many also attribute diminished fear and depression to this gemstone.
