Some call this type of quarts “Sagenite”.  The minerals inside this variation of crystal quartz, looks like light browncolored hair strands.Rutile is a mineral composed primarily of titanium dioxideTiO2.

Rutile is the most common natural form of TiO2. Two rarer polymorphs of TiO2 are known:

Rutile has among the highest refractive indices of any known mineral and also exhibits high dispersion. Natural rutile may contain up to 10% iron and significant amounts of niobium and tantalum.

Rutile derives its name from the Latin rutilus, red, in reference to the deep red color observed in some specimens when viewed by transmitted light.

The Rutile inclusions trapped inside the crystal is a mineral composed of titanium oxide.This stone is also known as the Venus hair stone. The rutiles within the stone may vary in color from dark yellow, black or red. Rutile is a common accessorymineral in high-temperature and high-pressure metamorphic rocks and in igneous rocks.

Rutile, when present in large enough quantities in beachsands, forms an important constituent of heavy mineral sands ore deposits. Miners extract and separate the valuable minerals (typically rutile, zircon, and ilmenite). The main uses for rutile are the manufacture of refractoryceramic, as a pigment, and for the production of titaniummetal. Finely powdered rutile is a brilliant white pigment and is used in paintsplasticspaper, foods, and other applications that call for a bright white color.
