This Quartz with Hematite & Rutile mineral combo specimen is from Brazil, featuring a combination of sharp black hematite crystals and golden needles of rutile all resting on a terminated clear quartz crystal. The hematite occurs in a sharp lustrous crystal that has intricate triangular striations. The golden rutile needles are growing on both the outside of the specimen and within the clear quartz point which also features a rainbow on this display side.
Rutile, also known as titanium dioxide, is a mineral that is often found in association with quartz. When present in quartz, it can appear as golden or reddish-brown needle-like inclusions that can be seen scattered within the crystal. Rutile inclusions in quartz are highly prized by collectors and are believed to have additional metaphysical properties to the quartz crystal, as well as enhancing the beauty of the specimen.
Hematite, also spelled as haematite, is the mineral form of iron oxide. Hematite is the oldest known iron oxide mineral that has ever formed on earth, and is widespread in rocks and soils. Hematite is colored black to steel, silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red and is rated between 5.5 and 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Hematite is metaphysically referred to as a grounding stone, thought to help to develop will power, and often utilized for dream work.
Clear quartz is one of the most abundant minerals in the world and is rated at a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. It can be found in many forms such as tumbled, carved and rough. It can develop in a wide range of environments and can be found on every continent. Clear quartz is thought metaphysically to promote understanding, clarity, and is associated with inner strength.
