Rutiles can often be found trapped inside gemstones, where they appear as microscopic inclusions. Rutile is primarily made of titanium dioxide and can be responsible for causing amazing optical effects such as cat’s eye or asterisms.
Gems such as Tourmaline, Ruby and Sapphire often have rutile inclusions and Rutile Quartz is famed for its beautiful needle-like inclusions.
As it can sometimes be seen as a red inclusion within certain gemstones, its name is derived from the Latin word for red, “rutilus”, which is also responsible for the name given to red Corundum (Ruby).
