This type of quartz contains within it inclusions of titanium oxide in needle-like sprays. These titanium needles of gold, red-yellow, or silver help to push energy through the chakras. The quartz itself could be clear or smoky, as in the example above. This particular specimen with the smoky quartz and golden needles can assist in manifesting ideas into the physical by firmly aligning all the chakras to be congruent with the idea to be manifested. So if you have an idea you want to make into reality but some other part of you (mind, heart, spirit, body, etc) isn't on the bandwagon, try working with a golden rutilated smoky quartz and see how it can help you.
Smoky and citrine varieties of rutile quartz may fade in sunlight. Sea salt and water or sacred smoke recommend for cleansing.
