Healing Properties of Rutilated Quartz

Spiritual: Rutilated Quartz infuses our spirit with an incredibly pure vibration of Light and Joy.  It encourages us to step into our own Spiritual Greatness, and to not stay ‘little’ when the Divine longs for us to play ‘big.’  Rutilated Quartz enhances psychic and intuitive gifts, and gives strength to long-distance energy readings and healing.  It can similarly be used to amplify manifestation, helping us to proclaim to the Universe, loud and clear, whatever we most desire.  Rutilated Quartz increases our conscious connection to our Angel Guides and reminds us that we are divinely protected.  This stone is particularly helpful for therapists and other healers who spend the majority of their working hours around people with heavy or negative energy.  Rutilated Quartz filters the negative energy so that it cannot attach to the healer, while simultaneously supporting each client to find new epiphanies. Rutilated Quartz is attuned to ALL the Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Taurus and Gemini. It is connected to the element of Storm and vibrates to the number 4.

Emotional: Rutilated Quartz has a very hopeful energy that brings peace to our hearts and minds.  It is an anti-depressant crystal which can help us to feel less burdened and overwhelmed during trying times as well as in our regular daily life.  Rutilated Quartz  is a stone for new beginnings, and can help us to start new habits and projects that will bring us happiness.  It promises that new beginnings can happen with ease, and that we don’t need to struggle in order to grow. Rutilated Quartz stabilizes romantic relationships and helps us to feel emotionally balanced.  It encourages us to enjoy sex and to release negative beliefs about sexuality and sensuality.

Mental: Rutilated Quartz sharpens the memory making it an excellent study aid. It can also be used to help us remember our dreams, both the sleeping and the wakeful varieties.  Rutilated Quartz encourages us to stop procrastinating and start making our best dreams come true.  It encourages us to dream big, to build our castles in the sky and then figure out how to place a foundation underneath them.

Physical: Rutilated Quartz is used by metaphysical healers to treat “phantom pain” after amputations, to counter addictions and to reduce the power of PTSD. It is also said to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss.  Rutilated Quartz is believed to improve the digestive process and help the body absorb nutrients more effectively.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

***Rutilated Quartz has the same qualities as pure Rutile, however, the energy is magnified due to the presence of Clear Quartz.

Rock Family: Rutilated Quartz is technically a rock, rather than a mineral. As an easy way to understand the difference, think of rocks as being like cookies and minerals as being the ingredients which make up those cookies. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In this case, Rutile is enclosed within Clear Quartz or Smoky Quartz.

Formation: Rutile and Quartz can both be formed in igneous rocks. In this case, the Rutile grows first, and then the Quartz crystal grows around and eventually engulfs the Rutile crystal. Enclosed crystals in Quartz are sometimes called inclusions, or more properly, protogenetic minerals. Rutile most often grows as a microscopic inclusion in other minerals.  The famous “star” in Star Sapphires and Star Rubies is entirely due to tiny Rutile inclusions

Mining:  Rutile is a minor mineral found in a variety of igneous and metamorphic rocks.  Most individual Rutile crystals are very small, but they can be found in large quantities.  Rutile is extracted for manufacturing purposes, mainly to make ceramics, as a pigment and in the production of titanium – the metal commonly used to build airplanes, spaceships, ships, and missiles.  Occasionally beautiful pieces of Rutilated Quartz are found and sold as collector’s pieces.    

Enhancements: Synthetic Rutile has been produced since the 1940s for industrial purposes.  However, all Rutilated Quartz on the market may be considered fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting and polishing.

History of Rutilated Quartz

Pure Rutile (Binn Valley, Switzerland)

Rutilated Quartz comes in two basic varieties, Gold and Pink, the color being determine by how much Iron is in the mineral composition.  The named Rutile comes from the Latin rutilus, or red, in reference to the deep red variety of the mineral.

Golden Rutiled Quartz has long been nicknamed “Venus’ Hair Stone” and later “Angel Hair Stone”, since the long thin needles of Rutile are as thin as a single strand of hair, with a glorious golden shine.  In a similarly romantic vein, Gold Rutilated Quartz was thought to be sunshine captured inside Quartz, and could be used to bring hope in one’s darkest hour.  Pink Rutilated Quartz has been compared to the arrows of love, used by Cupid, Venus’ son.

Sourcing Relationship

I have been doing business with this source since 2014.  They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source.  The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons.  Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it.  The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners visit many small and industrial-size mines personally.  For artisanal-mined deposits in sub-Sahara Africa, the owners work with Gem Dealers who deal directly with the part-time miners.  The majority of these Gem Dealers are women.  Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin.  For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly.  As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them.  However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

    This Golden Rutile Quartz is a little beauty. The Quartz’s clarity lets in dazzling light that shines along the golden rays of the Rutile, making them look like Sunrays. This crystal’s smooth surface and warm presence have a happy feeling to the touch as much as to the eye.
