Item Description

Rutile is usually only seen as inclusions in other gems like Quartz, and is rarely found in crystals that are suitable enough to cut stones. Rutile is usually cut as a novelty, and typically faceted stones are extremely dark. With that said, this stone actually shows an attractive red color when backlit and is slightly included. The cut on this gem is a "Marquise" cut. You really don't see much faceted Rutile on the market, so this is a unique opportunity to obtain an unusually rare gem to fill a spot in your collection. Stone with this clarity and rich color are rarely seen, so don't miss out on this one.
