Rutilated Smoky Quartz and Rutilated Quartz: Small strands of titanium oxide called rutiles are responsible for a beautiful golden display inside some quatz pieces. This can happen in clear and smoky
quartz pieces. The titanium strands of rutile create a beautiful formation like golden shiny strands of hair inside Smoky Quartz or Clear Quartz.
When exposed to the light, the rutiles play the role of conductor of energy, magnifying the impact of the healing in the same ways that the metal gold does. Furthermore, as well as being a conductor of energy, it raises the vibration of everything that is exposed to a piece of rutilated smoky quartz or clear quartz.
Pieces of rutilated quartz can be used in the same manner as you would use Clear quartz, rose quartz or smoky quartz. Rutilated smoky quartz can be used in Lower Chakras for grounding purposes and to balance the Higher and Lower Chakras. Rutilated Clear Quartz and Amber Colored Quartz can be used on or around the Higher Chakras of the body.
