Gems and Jewelry, 10.1 mm x 3.9 mm; 1.18 cts

Rutile is usually only seen as inclusions in other gems like Quartz, and is rarely found in crystals that are suitable enough to cut stones. Rutile is usually cut as a novelty, and typically faceted stones are extremely dark. With that said, this "Narrow Emerald" stone actually shows an amazingly rich blood red color when backlit, and is nearly eye clean. You really don't see much faceted Rutile on the market, so this is a unique opportunity to obtain an unusually rare gem to fill a spot in your collection. Stone with this clarity and rich color are rarely seen, so don't miss out on this one.
