Green rutilated quartz from India will have green acicular needles in milky colored quartz. (Stock 260) Rutilated quartz is an interesting rare stone where inclusions of glistening needles of minerals are entombed as the quartz crystals grow. (Rutilated basically means shot full of needles.) The size of the specimen grade rough of rutilated quartz, green, will be from one half pound on up, but most are small, around 1/2 pound. (The image shown was one piece of exceptional size.) The green needles are thought to be actinolite. See a beautiful cab made from green rutilated quartz.
