A quartz stone with shards of embedded gold, Golden Rutile is prized for the beauty of these inclusions. These needle-like crystals piercing through the stone are thought to inject energy into the stone and amplify the intentions of the wearer. Golden Rutile’s striking appearance has inspired descriptions such as ‘cupid’s darts’, ‘Venus hair stone’ and ‘fleches d’amour’.
The stone is mined mostly in Madagascar and Brazil.
Golden Rutile is a mood lifting stone and in crystal healing is used to alleviate depression and anxiety. It is an excellent chakra healing stone for the Solar Plexus.
