The name Rutile originates from the Latin word rutilus, meaning “red”, “golden”, “auburn”, or “shining”. Twin crystals of Rutile are not uncommon. A single Rutile specimen can have up to 6 or even 8 twins arranged into a circular chain. When there are 6 such twins, we speak of a Rutile star. Its spatial arrangement is caused by the rhombohedral shape of the Hematite core out of which the Rutile star emanates.

Rutile is also referred to as “Angel hair”. It is an important, multi-purpose mineral. Rutile is the main ore for titanium production.

It is often found as inclusion in Quartz, Tourmaline, Ruby, Sapphire, and other stones.
