These natural Prismatic Red Rutile Crystals from Diamantina, Brazil are a wonderfully rare find. They are tiny in physical size, but gigantic in their presence. Some of the most powerful stones in this world are tiny ... think of Diamonds. These dark crystals have an almost metallic like shimmer when the light catches them just so. The red is not immediately apparent. Like fine wine in a candle lit room, they hide their true hue. You must seek out the ruby flash. They can be found in the prismatic form of slender rods or in their reticular form, when they grow together in groups of twins. The crystals in the reticulated form remind me of snowflakes.
Rutile is one of the 3 mineral forms of Titanium Dioxide, the other two being Brookite and Anatase (the rarest of the three). So basically, they are all different manifestations of ONE ELEMENT! I think this is extremely profound. This crystal clearly demonstrates the concept of ONENESS. It is a gift to see how one being can take 3 different forms. It helps us to imagine how in a world with a unfathomable amount of physically different life forms, we are at our essence ... the SAME!
The three forms of Titanium Dioxide came together in song ....
Three as One
You may choose between the prismatic or snowflake formation of Rutile. I will listen for the Rutile Crystal who is singing for you.
