The beautiful bronzy inclusions in this rutilated quartz stone inspired the design of the rest of this bracelet. The sterling silver double band and darkly-patinated bronze embellishment are the perfect compliment to such a special stone!

Quartz is a hard, crystalline mineral made from silicon and oxygen. Naturally occurring in hexagonal crystals, it's the second-most common mineral in the Earth's crust. When other minerals and metals are included within a quartz crystal, the can form interesting fiber and splinter formations. Stones with these inclusions are referred to as 'rutilated quartz'.
