Rutilated Quartz is generally found in clear or smoky quartz with various colors of rutile included in it as fine, often metallic looking, thin threads.  You will find the colors of rutile ranging from copper, gold, silver to black (which is actually tourmaline).

This is one of my favorite crystals to have in my presence and work with.  I feel so connected to spiritual guidance when I have these guys with me.  They bring with them clarity and shine the Light on the obstacles I find on my inward journey. 

I love the imagery of the Rutiles as angel hairs.  It helps me feel connected to Divine energy, guidance and knowledge.  You can connect to the presence of angels and the Divine in your life.  The Rutile or angel hairs bring in cosmic Light to illuminate the soul. This light breaks down the barriers to spiritual progress. It helps you let go of the past by supporting emotional release as you face the darker aspects of the ego and self.

While this is a very strong and powerful crystal it is also graceful and gentle as you expand your awareness.  It amplifies intentions, emotions and pure consciousness. It quickens the process of manifestation, intuition, emotional catharsis, psychic opening and conscious expansion. It can aid in the process of purifying the mind of toxic thoughts and patterns.

Manifest Dreams with Rutilated Quartz

Rutilated Quartz grounds Divine Light energy into this earthly realm and brings illumination to all levels of your being. Like all Quartz, it can be programmed to magnify the energy of any intention or affirmation. It helps you maintain focus and clarity when starting a new project or working to manifest something in your life. If an obstacle arises, Rutilated Quartz helps you find the roots of the problem and facilitates transitions and a change of direction so you can follow through with your ideas or plans.

The Smoky Rutilated Quartz is less airy, heady and intense than the Clear Rutilated Quartz. It is excellent for manifestation because of its grounding and stabilizing influence. It can help things become “real” in the manifest, physical world.

Rutilated Quartz is a very powerful healer. It can be used to soothe dark and gloomy moods, acting as an antidepressant. It helps relieve fears, phobias, overwhelm, anxieties and self-hatred. It can be beneficial for chronic conditions, impotence, infertility, lactation, the immune system and energy depletion.

Rutile Colors

The colors of the Rutile included within the Quartz indicate how the Light will enter your field.

Copper- Assists the physical body to integrate higher frequencies of energy and can assist in removing blockages to health and abundance.

Golden – Activates your creative energies and the ability to receive Divine inspiration.


Silver – Brings enhanced intuitive abilities.

Black – Materializes and grounds the spiritual into the physical. (Black rutilation is actually tourmaline.)

Rutilated Quartz

Rutilated Quartz stimulates and clears all the chakras. It is a powerful protector from negative energy while it purifies the aura. It brings strength with love, ease in transition, growth in all avenues of one’s development as well as calm, reason and order.

It has a stabilizing effect – on relationships, for marriages, mental processes and emotional or physical imbalance. In developing stability it helps you find the root of the problem to understand the reason for the existence of the pattern, dis-ease or obstacle so you may then remedy the situation.

If you are ready to receive any of the energy discussed here, find a piece of Rutilated Quartz that you can carry with you, hold in meditation, wear as jewelry or have as a mala to use with your mantra meditation practices.  When working with Rutilated Quartz, open yourself to its energies, have a clear intention, and let yourself partner with the energy to manifest something amazing in your life.

With Love,
