Rutilated Quartz is generally Clear or Smokey Quartz riddled with needle-like pieces of Rutile which is made of titanium dioxide. This stone can appear as clear and/or translucent, or opaque Quartz with many needles of Rutile inside. The Rutile within the Quartz is generally a golden color but may be other colors such as silver, red, or copper.

It is fun to gaze into Rutilated Quartz which is also known as "The Hairs of Venus" or "Angel Hair".

Rutilated Quartz can clear energy blockages from all of the chakras, and attune one to their Divine Purpose. It puts off an exceptionally high level of energy, and is said to bring physical and mental balance and stability. This is an uplifting stone, infusing joy into one's life and surrounding environment.

Rutilated Quartz also enhances self-reliance and helps with decision-making. Use Rutilated Quartz as a link between the Root and Crown Chakras, or to get to the “root” of a problem.

Visualization is very important when programming this stone for any purpose. Specifically, the golden or silver color of Rutilated Quartz works very well with manifestation programs. The holder must imagine themselves within the crystal to program it, vividly imagining the energies of the program moving along the individual Rutile Crystals within the Quartz. Once this is accomplished, this crystal will powerfully amplify the program, and continue to send it out into the universe.

Rutilated Quartz can also be used for helping to discern the positive or negative vibes or motives of a person, place, or thing.

Rutilated Quartz is often used during meditation, for connecting to the Divine. Working with Rutilated Quartz can help one to connect to higher realms and spirit guides, due to the inclusions of Rutile in the Quartz, which acts as a kind of psychic antenna. Rutilated Quartz is also said to help bring one into an expanded state of consciousness. People who are working to enhance their psychic abilities are aided by Rutilated Quartz, as well as those who desire greater concentration and clarity.

Physically, Rutilated Quartz can be used to speed healing of injuries and slow down aging. Amputees can use Rutilated Quartz to help ease the phenomena known as phantom pain.
