History & Origin:

Rutilated or Rutile Quartz is a type of Quartz that contains needle-like inclusions of Rutile, which can appear golden or sometimes even silver, red or black, & often resembles the glistening hair of Angels. Rutile is an oxide mineral composed of titanium dioxide & can appear in Quartz as thin or thick, sparse or dense, or parallel or crisscrossed like a star. While the exact date of discovery is unknown, Rutilated Quartz was officially recognised in 1803 & it was not until 1940 when the first major deposit was found in the Serra de Mangabeira mountain range of Brazil. This stone has a strong connection to the Goddesses Freyja, Venus & Aphrodite, often being referred to as 'The Hair of Aphrodite.'
