RUTILATED quartz - information
The rutile quartz is actually a rock crystal. It is made of pure silicon oxide and oxygen. The transparent crystalline essence of the quartz has grown in caves for millions of years before becoming crystallized. Its characteristic clear, transparent appearance is accompanied by a crisscross of needle-like strands, which is created by deposits of titanium oxide crystals. Most rutile quartz originates from the Alps, from Brazil and the United States. Since the time of the ancient Greeks, rutile quartz has been venerated as the stone of truth. As a healing stone, they say, it aims to strengthen the lungs and activate the immune system. It should also help one to develop new concepts of life and to face the future with more confidence.
