Quartz is the most abundant mineral on the face of the earth. Basic Quartz is found from milky white to optically clear. Colored varieties usually have their own names, like Amethyst or Citrine.
The name crystal comes from the Greek for "ice", as it was believed that rock crystal was eternally frozen. The name rutile means "reddish" in Latin.
Metaphysical Properties of Rutilated Quartz: Rutilated Quartz is said to enhance physical and mental balance and stability, self-reliance and finding one's way. Many also attribute diminished fear and depression to the gemstone. It is also believed to slow down the aging process!
