Black Rutile Quartz wire wrapped handmade pendant necklace
A lovely cabochon of Black Rutile Quartz (Tourmalinated Quartz) that I have wrapped, by hand, in silver plated copper wire. I have given the wire a slightly aged tone – it is not a very shiny silver colour. The wire is nickel and lead free. This genuine, natural gemstone is mix of grey colours with black inclusions.
Black Rutile Quartz or sometimes called black Tourmalinated Quartz, gets its name from the needle-like inclusions of black tourmaline that forms within the quartz.
Rutile Quartz is used in crystal healing to help with nerve pain – the inclusions in the quartz are said to resemble nerves in the body. It is also thought to help alleviate ‘phantom pain’. It is also said to help reduce hair loss. It is believed to help with chronic conditions, ie bronchitis, asthma, COPD etc. It is said to help lift your energy levels and improve your self esteem.
There are many excellent websites and books with information about the formation of gemstones and the healing properties of gemstones, should you wish to do your own research.
This pendant is approx. 35mm in total length (including bail) with a mesh chain of approx. 40cm and 4cm extender chain.
Designed and handmade in Roscommon, Ireland. This will be sent in a presentation box, so would make an ideal gift.
