• Rutile quartz and black agate silver plated earrings


    Holidays are coming and so is the sun, hopefully!

    These silver plated copper earrings have been made using rutilated quartz twisted drops and black agate beads.  The form of rutilated quartz used in these earrings has black needle like inclusions within the quartz gemstones. 

    A little bit of history, myth and legend about rutilated quartz

    Rutilated quartz is a form of quartz with mineral inclusions in it.  The inclusions can be red, black or brassy yellow with a metallic lustre to them.  These earrings have black inclusions in them.  Quartz is one of the most commonly found minerals of the Earth's crust and the name comes from the Greek word crustless meaning ice.  This was as quartz was originally  thought to be ice formed by the gods.

    Rutilated quartz is thought to be associated with the throat and solar plexus chakra's.  It is thought to be an energising stone that helps to get energy in the body moving.  Rutile quartz is also thought to help slowed chakras to return to normal spin and balance.
