About Rutile Topaz
Rutile (or Rutilated) Topaz is colorless topaz with inclusions that look like rutile crystals, similar to rutilated quartz. However, studies have shown that the inclusions which look like rutile needles are in fact limonite staining in thin channels in the topaz. This is why the inclusions in so-called rutilated topaz tend to be less dense than in rutilated quartz.
I have just started setting my own stones and have found that buying stones that do not have the size or are advertised as "mm varies" are very difficult when finding correct setting and I end up with extra settings and no stone for them. I am grateful that this site has such clear/concise information for their stones.
