Where does the name “Rutile Quartz” come from?

It was at the beginning of the 19th century that the mineralogist Abraham Gottlob Werner named it thus.

The designation “Rutile Quartz” comes from the Latin “Rutilus” which can be translated as “gleaming”, i.e. a bright and fiery red.

This crystalline gem contains rutile which appears in the form of hair-like spines and whose color ranges from gold to black to copper. They give this stone its charm and give it many synonyms such as “angel hair”, “Venus hair”, “hairstone”, “needle stone” or even “arrow of love”.

Furthermore, rutile also has a plethora of names such as “cajuelite”, “rutilite”, “edsonite”, “crispite”, “titanite”, “nigrite”.

Composition of the Rutile Quartz stone

Rutile Quartz is mainly composed of titanium (TIO2) and iron (Fe) inclusions. The presence of elements such as tantalum, niobium, vanadium or tin gives it its color. It is the rutile needles it contains that make it so special.

The constitution of this gem results from the combination of a solution of silicic acid which contains titanium and rutile fibers formed at high temperature. When it cools, it crystallizes and traps the rutile.

It is a robust mineral and easy to cut. Its hardness amounts to 7 Mohs, as for its density, it oscillates between 2.68 and 2.72. To date, numerous deposits exist throughout the world, which is why its price remains relatively affordable. The most important remain in Madagascar and Brazil.
