RUTILATED QUARTZ SPHERE
Madagascar
D. 12 cm
Rutilated Quartz has become a popular item in the lapidary world and this sizable polished sphere shows why. Contained within this water-clear and colorless quartz sphere are hundreds of hair like reddish gold needles of Rutile – thrusting out in a veritable forest of random orientations. The Quartz is quite transparent with typical veil type inclusions. It measures approximately 4 ¼ inches (11 cm) in diameter and has been polished to a bright finish.
