Rutile is a crystal form of titanium oxide and ranges from nearly black to golden in color. Transparent quartz showing sprays of thin rutile crystals within has been used in jewelry and ornamentation since ancient times. Rutilated quartz often contains sprays of golden rutile so fine they look like hair and thus the stone is also known as Venus' hairstone. A lapis-rutile doublet has transparent rutilated quartz on top with a blue lapis backing.
