Rutilated Quartz is Quartz stone with Rutile enclosures. Rutile is a mineral made up mostly of Titanium Dioxide. It's very high on the refractive index and disperses more than almost any other mineral which means when it appears in other minerals it almost always appears in long, thin shots of color. Rutile is the Latin word for red and got it's name because some Rutiles are deep red in color. Rutiles can also appear in brown, grey and gold tones.

Quartz is the second most common mineral in the Earth's continental crust.  It is mainly composed of Silica or Silica based minerals.  Although Quartz is known by a variety of names, the most important distinction between types of Quartz is that of macro-crystalline, individual crystals visible to the unaided eye, and micro-crystalline, where aggregates of crystals are only visible under high magnification.  There are many forms of Quartz including Chalcedony, Amethyst, Citrine, and Carnelian which are results of mineral impurities or heat treatments.

Fuchsite is a green variety of Muscovite Mica. It differs from most other Muscovite by having a variable amount of trivalent Chromium substituting for Aluminum within the mineral. Chromium is the source of Fuchsite's green color. It sometimes has Ruby Crystals which are completely opaque and unsuitable as gemstones, but are well colored and contrast strikingly against the green matrix of the Fuchsite.

Ruby is a light pink to blood red gemstone which is a variety of the mineral Corundum.  The common red color is caused by the element Chromium.  It is considered on of the four precious stones including Sapphire, Emerald, and Diamond.  The price is primarily determined by color, clarity, cut and carat.

This material is a new find from Madagascar. The deposit formed as a rhyolite flow but has been completely silicified. The Rhyolitic eyes or orbs come in an astonishing array of colors and color combinations. The back ground can be white, pink, green, red, or yellow. Botryoidal formations as well as white and deep green druzy are also common. This deposit has been discovered at the edge of the ocean. It can only be seen and collected at low tide. The area has no road so the material must be transported to civilization by boat.  This material is fast becoming a rarity in the Jasper ocban fields, so get one while it is still available.
