Tourmalinated Quartz Pendant
Included Quartz Pendant
Tourmalinated quartz pendant featuring an eye-catching polished cabochon. Crafted by hand by one of a small team of skilled artisans exclusively for Stone Mania, the setting for this ladies pendant is fine sterling silver.
Tourmalinated quartz is gemstone that's not seen that often in jewellery and stones of this size and grade are few and far between. A variety of included quartz that features inclusions of black tourmaline, it's often incorrectly referred to as rutilated quartz or black rutile both of which are incorrect because the mineral inclusion is tourmaline not rutile.
As fascinating as tourmalinated quartz may be it's not particularly rare because tourmaline is one of the most common inclusions found in quartz. The black needle-like crystals make each stone unique and whilst some can feature just a few strands of rutile others can be jam packed.
This tourmalinated quartz makes a superb ladies pendant but it is the only piece that we currently have in our collection that features a cabochon.
