RUTILATED QUARTZ CABOCHON (BRAZIL) – 12 X 12 MM.
# Cab 451
Rutilated quartz is clear quartz crystal with inclusions of showy rutile, beautiful material when showcased this way. Sometimes called Angel’s-Hair Quartz, it comes mainly from Brazil. Due to strict export controls imposed by Brazil, fine material is increasingly hard to find and increasingly expensive. This calibrated 12 x 12 mm. stone is called an antique cushion shape by some, or a sugarloaf cut by others. The dome is a bit low for a standard sugarloaf shape but high enough to allow a stunning display of the gold-colored rutile. It will fit standard calibrated settings. All natural, no treatment of any kind. (All uses, N).
