~ Rutilated quartz cab ~

Offered here is a large, fancy cabochon of rutilated quartz, from Brazil, some of the best I've ever had to work with. It features beautifully flashy angel-hair needles of bright golden rutile, clumped and scattered like jackstraws. The quality I like best about it is this stone's remarkable depth, created by the layers of rutile, bunched up, single, and one atop the other, criss-crossing every which way. The water clear quartz really shows off, and even amplifies, this stone's many rutile inclusions, with next to none of the typical 'fairy frost'. And you should see how dazzling the rutile looks in direct sunlight, just like threads of spun gold! It has a beautifully rounded dome of nearly 7mm, a designer 'paisley' shape, and a slick, glassy all-over polish.

Size: 44x24mm
Weight: approximately 65 carats
