Rutile in Quatz, natural, although a bit rare. Set in hammered texture Sterling Silver. Rutile are the golden slender needles naturally embedded within the clear quartz of this ring.

Small rutile needles present in gems are responsible for "star" sapphires, "star" rubies and other "star" gems, an optical phenomenon known as asterism.
