Rutilated Quartz Beaded Necklace
This necklace features AAA grade, high quality, rutilated quartz stones. Crystal clear quartz is host to brownish, gold rutile. Rutile is a major ore of titanium and is considered the most valuable form of rutilated quartz. I photographed this necklace in the sunlight to show off how much this unique stone shines. The rutile crystals look like metallic ribbons and glitter. It's truly amazing that this is stone is all natural and not enhanced by the hands of man. One large stone with a diameter of 15mm is the centerpiece of the necklace. It's framed by two more rutilated quartz stones with a diameter size of 6mm each. Bali silver beads accent in between these exquisite stones. The rest of the necklace is made up of Czech glass beads with a brown, satin finish, which alternate between silver, glass beads in a charlote cut. All of the beads are strung onto nylon, coated, stainless steel, wire for maximum strength. The necklace is then finished with a spring ring clasp. The length is 16" adjustable up to 18". Another bead of rutilated quartz accents the end of the extension chain.
