Rutilated quartz

 Rutilated quartz is a light yellow stone with golden threads.  The quartz in this ring is mounded in a heavy ornate sterling silver setting. Rutilated quartz is a typical stone (not too hard to find) with needle-like rutile embedded in it. Rutile is define as a mineral consisting of titanium dioxide, typically occurring as needle-like crystals, the needles can even be reddish (which is what rutile means in Latin), they may be golden, silver, and on rare occasions, green
Legend/Healing Properties myths: It was once said that this stone had healing strengths and aided in sleeping disorders, enhanced creativity, relieved depression and loneliness. Most interesting I found was rutilated quartz was also said to slow down the aging process
