Rutilated Quartz is made from quartz crystals that have rutile inclusions in them. The rutile inclusions are usually a golden color, sometimes also seen as red or brown.
Quartz is a common mineral that is found all over the earths surface and is a major component in many other types of gemstones. This particular type of gemstone, rutilated quartz, houses the ore known as rutile. Rutile is a titanium dioxide mineral, which is a metal that is used for high-tech alloys.

Quartz is a 7.5 on the mohs scale of hardness while rutile is a 6 on the mohs scale of hardness. Because of the differences in hardness with quartz and rutile, these tumbled or polished stones are often pitted and not completely smooth. They are still beautiful stones that look like they have golden hairs in the middle of them!
