Quartz is a crystalline form of silica. The greatest concentrations of quartz are found in silica-rich igneous and metamorphic rocks. Quartz is one of Earth’s most abundant minerals and is an essential component of granite and many other rocks. Often transparent, Quartz can be found in almost any color. There are two main types of Quartz: macrocrystalline and microcrystalline. Macrocrystalline Quartz is composed of visible crystals, microcrystalline Quartz is densely compacted microscopic quartz crystals. Quartz has piezoelectric properties, meaning it generates an electric charge in response to pressure.
Chemical composition: SiO2 ; Hardness: 7
Rutile is one of five natural forms of titanium dioxide and the most abundant. It sometimes forms like wheat straw or needles within other crystals such as quartz or topaz. Rutile has an adamantine luster and refractive index that rivals diamond but cannot compare in hardness.
Chemical composition: TiO2; Hardness: 6-6.5
Quartz is called the Master Healer Stone. It amplifies personal power by connecting one to the energies of the universe. Quartz acts as a bridger of realms and opens doors for communication with plants, animals, and beings from other dimensions. Quartz will activate all of the energy centers and trigger one’s highest potential to unfold.
Rutile has a stabilizing energy and can help get to the cause of a problem by eliminating obstacles and blockages. Its ethereal aspect strengthens intuition and aids in understanding the meaning of dreams and visions.
