Zagi Mountain, Pakistan
Golden Rutile is another fantastic Quartz inclusion that has gained worldwide acclaim. Entire shops of Golden Rutilated Quartz beads and jewelry can be found in Asia. The perfection of Clear Quartz with shimmering golden needles, sometimes radiating in a 6 pointed star growing out of lustrous Hematite centers, has captivated the appeal of a wide audience. The rarity of a perfect star in water clear crystal is a true gem to behold!
Zagi Mountain is most well known for its Quartzes and rare earth minerals. Huge sized Basneasites, Xenotimes, Parasites, Monozites, et al can be found here. The Quartz inclusions are also vast. Within just 1 piece from Zagi Mountain we have seen inclusions of Aegerine, Riebeckite, multiple colors bending of Rutile, Astrophyllite, and traces of fluorescent Yttrium. On rare occasion, a Quartz included with Bastnaesite can be found!
