Rutilated quartz is a clear quartz stone with rutile enclosures. Rutile is a mineral that is made up mostly of titanium dioxide, or TiO2. When rutile appears within quartz, creating rutilated quartz, it often appears as needles of included color. In some gorgeous examples, rutilated quartz looks as if it is filled with gold fibers. The effect is uniquely beautiful. Venus hair stone, Fleches d’amour, and Cupid’s darts are also names associated with rutilated quartz.
About pearls: Throughout history, the pearl, with its warm inner glow and shimmering iridescence, has been one of the most highly prized and sought after gems. In ancient Rome, pearls were considered the ultimate symbol of wealth and social standing. The Greeks held the pearl in high esteem for both its unrivaled beauty and its association with love and marriage. Pearls are the birthstone for June.
What is a cultured pearl? An oyster or mollusk is artificially "seeded" with a tiny grain of sand or other object. The mollusk then excretes a coating to protect itself from the irritant. Several layers are accreted, creating a real pearl.
