Rutilated Quartz Teardrop Pendant

This teardrop rutilated quartz cabochon is a lovely smokey color with darker needles or rutiles running through it. It has a high, polished dome and is quite thick. I've border wrapped it in sterling silver wire and given it my signature topper.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The pendant measures 2 1/8" from top of bail and is 1 1/8" wide.

Note: Rutilated quartz is a combination of clear or smokey quartz, a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 7, with inclusions of rutile, a titanium oxide mineral (with a hardness of 6 to 6.5). The rutile inclusions usually look like fine metallic hairs or needles, and they can be gold, silver or copper colored as in this particular stone. The quartz can occur in massive form or in prismatic crystals. Most rutilated quartz comes from Brazil or Madagascar. This particular stone is from Brazil.

Metaphysically, rutilated quartz is said to activate the higher mind. Rutiles of a reddish color are said to assist in directing light energy to remove blockages in the body.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
