Rutile is seldom sold as a crystal on its own, usually it is seen as an inclusion in Quartz. It gets its name from the Latin word for reddish, 'rutilus'. Tiny needles of Rutile inside other crystals is what causes the star effect, or asterism, in Star crystals such as Star Rose Quartz, Star Sapphire and more.
