Rutilated Quartz

Rutilated Quartz
Rutilated quartz is a beautiful stone produced by inclusions of golden rutile in quartz.  At a high temperature and pressure the two minerals are collectively stable, but as the temperature and pressure drop the rutile crystals become trapped inside the quartz crystals. The rutile needles and the quartz crystal then continue to grow simultaneously at the lower temperatures, producing one of the most stunning combinations in the mineral world.

Expanding awareness, optimism, frees from entanglements
