Radically robust rutile in these 7/8” rutilated quartz plugs
Came across some stunning material a while back and this pair is from one of the first pieces I’ve cut. Stacks and stacks of rutile produces an incredible shimmer in the sunlight that just can’t be done justice in pictures
Rutile has among the highest refractive indices at visible wavelengths of any known crystal. Rutile also displays something called birefringence, which is responsible for the phenomenon of double refraction whereby a ray of light, when incident upon a birefringent material, is split by polarization into two rays taking slightly different paths.
In other words…
SPARKLY!!!
I do have more of this material available, email christine.imperialorganics@gmail.com for any inquiries & orders

Make a coffee

Hold an Agate in the palm of your hand

Remark how this tiny, seemingly insignificant and ugly little nodule has existed for millions… billions of years, has outlived civilizations, hierarchies, doctrines, wars, spiritual spheres beyond our comprehension, knowledges of the highest and the lowest regards, personalities, egos the size of mountains and molehills have come and gone, fading in comparison to this small miracle that I here strain to posses… possess, not the right word. Love, adore… the adoration for something so incomprehensible, such a magic that even the vast roots of science cannot encompass, cannot fully explain

I have witnessed a single drop of rain falling in my life, this small nodule has seen the greatest oceans form, touched the deepest centers of the earth, volcanic, intense, subtle witness to the volatile havoc that is creation itself.

To this stone I hold in the palm of my hand, I myself, become nothing.
Myself and my coffee cup, small, smaller, enraptured and enamored with this idea that I will not outlive this tiny wonderland that begs its simplicity and its shyness in such an unassuming skin.

Silent revelations, building and building in the skin, in the mind, in the rhythm and the beating of the heart, the impatience to draw that next breath of comprehension, small moments that become the most monumental in some deep and yearning part of the soul

Agate romantic

I fucking love what I do
