Rutilated Quartz Faceted Gem Gold Wrap Pendant
This necklace features a fine cut gem of rutilated quartz. I chose this stone not only because of its exquisite display of gold rutile throughout the gem but also for its unusual cut. Valued for its inclusions, this form of quartz has another crystal growing inside it known as rutile. Rutile is a major ore of titanium. This high quality jewel is wrapped with a gold filled, diamond cut, faceted wire which decoratively swirls about the top of the pendant. It measures 15mm in width and 47mm in length, which includes the gold bail. The pendant slides around a gold filled, rope chain with a length of 18 1/4" adjustable up to 20 1/4". A bead of rutilated quartz accents the end of the extension chain.
The rutile intensifies the properties of its host crystal. It’s also said to enhance one's understanding of difficult situations. It also increases creativity and relieves depression and loneliness and it slows down the aging process.
