Few people realize that the inclusions in RUTILATED QUARTZ actually crystallize first as a nest of thin acicular crystals, and are then surrounded by and frozen inside clear quartz crystals. This incredible specimen came from Novo Horizonte, Bahia, Brazil, the leading source for fine rutilated quartz specimens. Also, this specimen is completely natural, not polished (unlike most rutilated quartz seen today). Large, well-formed crystal clusters of rutilated quartz are very rare, and highly sought after by quartz collectors. I selected this very special specimen from the table of a Brazilian wholesale dealer at the East Coast Gem Rock and Mineral Show.
