Rutilated quartz is a clear quartz stone with rutile enclosures. Rutile is a mineral that is made up mostly of titanium dioxide, or TiO2. When rutile appears within quartz, creating rutilated quartz, it often appears as needles of included color. In some gorgeous examples, rutilated quartz looks as if it is filled with gold fibers. The effect is uniquely beautiful. Venus hair stone, Fleches d’amour, and Cupid’s darts are also names associated with rutilated quartz. These stones are thought to stimulate your spiritual creativity, and your ability to manifest what you desire in your life, through the power of intention.
About 14k gold fill: 14K gold filled wire is a professional jewelers grade wire. Gold filled wire is not plated. It is a tube of solid 14K gold mechanically bonded to a brass or silver base. There is 100 times more gold in gold filled than in gold plate wire. This layer of gold must be a minimum of 1/20th of the total metal weight to be called gold filled. The color looks exactly like 14k gold. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin and unlike gold plate, it will not wear off. It is a great way to enjoy affordable gold jewelry.
