Crystals, in general, are precious stones, which has been known since ancient times. They are the most favourite minerals. In the past, people were using it mainly for tool and cult objects making. Nowadays, crystal plays a significant role in jewellery, but also optics and electronics.

Crystal is the purest limpid variety of crystalline quartz. Under certain conditions, when there is a change in acidity, oxygen partial pressure, carbon dioxide content or the concentration of hydrothermal solutions, other minerals form inside the crystal mass. We call these minerals “trapped” inside the crystal inclusions. This piece from Brazil has inclusions of rutile.

Crystal with Rutile uniqueness: The needle-like crystals of rutile influence the colour of each stone. You can find crystals with rutile shading from silver and red-brown to gold. The golden stones are, naturally, the most desired. Sometimes, quite rarely, the stone has golden stars with metallic grey hematite centre in its structure.

Special conditions/ treatment: There is no need for special handling with crystal with rutile.
