Alina - Golden Rutilated Quartz necklace wire wrapped 14K gold filled. Handmade bohemian chic style jewellery by Arctida.

One of my most favorite semiprecious gemstones to work with and to wear is Golden Rutilated Rutile Quartz. It looks like a frozen drop of water with small bars of imbedded gold. And when the light hits it just right all that gold explodes with tons of sparkles! oh and did you know what one of the names for Golden Rutilated Quartz is Venus Hair Stone. The name is based on a beautiful legend. There was once Venus, goddess of love bathed in mountain springs. Having lost a lock of her golden hair, she returned to pick it up. But the time is a relative thing, what on Mount Olympus were only a few moments, on Earth were several months! The winter came and the water in the spring along with the hair was frozen. They looked so beautiful in the frozen water, so Venus decided to leave her wonderful hair, but turned the ice into a transparent stone first (from the Greek. "kristallus - ice) so that no one can take the hair of the goddess. And ever since that time people have found a clear crystal that holds the divine hair  of Venus. No wonder that gem is so beautiful! How can one not love the gem containg hair from the Goddess of Love?!

I already have earrings with Rutile Quartz for sale and thought why not make it a set, so here comes my new Golden Rutilated Quartz necklace wire wrapped 14K gold filled.
