Feeling restless? Before you head down to your nearest Starbucks for those espresso shots, give Rutilated Quartz a shot instead. It acts like a battery and is the Energizer you need to take on difficult tasks, minus the caffeine crash. Plugging into the energy of the lightning-esque golden rutile resembles an electrifying charge. Both of you will go together like Pikachu and Thunderbolt. Hold it in your hands or place it on your desk to filter out the noise and regain clarity in your mind. Rutilated Quartz has got your back for the next daunting task.
Some properties are further enhanced depending on the colour:
Reddish-brown - Motivation, Assertiveness
Yellow-gold - Strength, Money
Silver - Inspiration, Focus
Black - Protection, Clear negativity
Primary message of Rutilated Quartz: As I was intuiting, the energy of Rutile is most relatable to electricity and lightning. Both of which possess enormous power that is motivated to strike down targets and achieve specific results quickly. Their energy is constantly flowing and always in action. Nothing keeps them down, and it always bounce back up no matter what.
Meditate with Rutilated Quartz to amplify your manifestations and all the goodness the Universe has to offer. A money magnet to attract the positive abundance you desire.
Focus on aligning root + solar plexus chakras. It is important for the lower energy centres to be in balance and grounded. We want to avoid energy leak(s) so we can keep the energy level and pace steady and strong. By doing so, you strengthen your energetic field against taking on the energy of others and lower the chances of being swayed by negative influences. This energy shift helps to remove blocks that might have been in your way towards achieving monetary goals and rewards.
Wearing a piece of Rutile for a prolong period of time, helps to clear away energetic blocks especially relating to motivation, clarity, confidence and energy levels. Take any action(s) that is aligned to the purpose you wish to achieve. This is to trigger the energy flow. E.g. Attempt and initiate something positive (could be words, actions, thoughts) instead of sticking to same routine of imagining the worst case scenario. What this new action(s) triggers is not only a change in your system, but also send an energetic message to reset something you no longer desire. This is especially helpful when you feel things are working against you instead of for you. A small action will trigger a ripple effect. Imagine making an effort every single day. Manifesting for a positive change and the luck for door opening opportunities will grow over time.

1) During the Middle Ages, Vikings believed rutile came from Freyja, their “lady sovereign.” Freyja is one of the central goddesses in Norse mythology. (Credits: gemrockauctions)
2) In ancient Greece, rutile was named the “Hair of Venus” or “hair of Aphrodite” as tribute to the goddess of love and beauty. (Credits: gemrockauctions)
3) Rutilated Quartz is formed as a result of hydrothermal processes (natural occurrence). When high temperatures cool and pressure eases, rutile gets trapped within the quartz. Given that impurities and other minerals tend to be included during this process, it is less common to find Rutile not encased within Quartz. (Credits: britannica)
4) Presence of densely included tiny rutile creates the asterism/star sheen effect on some crystals. Eg. Star sapphire, star ruby. (Credits: geologyin)
