Black needle quartz

Post by Rena » 7 months ago

Does anyone know what this is? I've seen several loose "stones" on the RA. They remind me a little of black opal. I cannot find info on the slc website.

I think you might be referring to Rutilated Quartz. I have several rings with black & gold rutile needles & think they are very pretty.

No I know what Rutilated quartz is and Tourmalinated quartz too. It looks nothing like either of these.

Here's a screenshot of Black Needle Quart on the RA. Any thoughts?

No idea, but it's a beautiful color that reminds me of the Peacock Quartz Triplet.
