Pentagonal rutilated quartz, 36.05 carats, origin Brazil
Pentagonal rutilated quartz composed of various yellow to brownish rutile crystals that intertwine in its structure, perennial crystalline luster throughout the gem.
Very popular already in Antiquity, because of its decorative graphic aspect, the name rutilated quartz comes from the ancient Greek “Krustallos” meaning “ice” and from the adjective “rutilus” which means “red” in Latin, in reference to the color that characterizes it.
It was the German geologist and mineralogist, Abraham Gottlob Werner (1749-1817) who discovered and unveiled the rutilated quartz gem in 1803.
Rutile inclusions create unique patterns within the crystal, ranging from a subtle sparkle to a more pronounced shimmering sheen.
This rarity makes it a fine stone prized by collectors and lovers of exclusive gems.
