Venus Hair Quartz & Citrine Sterling Silver Pendant
Rutilated Quartz is one of the few gemstones desirable because of its inclusions, which gives it a special allure and desirability as a very unique gemstone. Rutilated Quartz is a transparent quartz with golden yellow rutile inclusions that are in hairlike growths. The rutile inclusions range from thin, sparse, and parallel, to thick, dense, and crisscrossed, and everything in-between. Each rutilated quartz gemstone is unique in its pattern of rutile inclusions. The chief source of Rutilated Quartz is Brazil. Rutilated quartz has also been referred to as Cupid's Darts, Venus Hair stone and Fleches d'amour.
