Rutile is a mineral that occurs in the form of fine needles or elongated crystals of golden, reddish or brown color.
Rutilated quartz is found in several deposits around the world, including Brazil, Madagascar, Australia, Norway, and the United States. These deposits are often associated with metamorphic rocks, such as gneiss and schist, thus favoring the formation of rutilated quartz.
