This is one of my all time favourite stones, it is a member of the Quartz family and is generally called Rutillated Quartz, although it also has the name Angel Hair Quartz and thats the one I prefer it truly does look as if it has the most gorgeous golden hair from an Angel trapped within the stone.
This picture some of you may have seen before cos it was in my birthday thread and is a truly magnificent specimen that the lovely Luna sent me as a birthday present.
Excellent healer of torn or broken tissues. Strengthens the vein walls.
Enhances insight and understanding of problems. Also helps you to understand that each person shares the powers of the universe, the passions of the planets and appreciates the understandings of the advanced worlds.
Assists in communication with the higher self and guides. During astral travel Rutilated Quartz helps to explain why you visited where you did and why you saw what you did and helps to make the connection between your sights and this life.
Rutilated Quartz is a variety of Quartz crystal that contains small needles of Rutile trapped inside. For you scientific types the needles are actually Titanium Dioxide crystals. Rutile intensifies the healing power of Quartz. It assists you by magnifying all positive energy entering your aura system, it clears negative energy and energy blockages. Some healers use it as a way of getting to the root of an ailment, providing answers for the appropriate treatment. Others have used it for astral travel to provide insight on why certain locations are visited. It does this by providing you with awareness. I highly recommend Rutilated Quartz for its beauty as well as healing properties. It has been known to represent both the lovely hair of Venus and the “sweet” tipped arrows of love. It has been likened to the appearance of wheat straw and angel hair.
