Gem Note

🌈🦄 This is a repurposed lab-created Rutile gemstone. Rutile boasts six times the dispersion of a diamond, making it sparkle even more brilliantly than a disco ball in sunlight! While it can be used as a pendant, its hardness, which is slightly higher than opal but lower than quartz, makes it less suitable for use in a ring.

🌈🦄🍭 Rutile, a naturally occurring form of titanium dioxide (TiO2), is a mineral with significant industrial importance. Known for its high refractive index and opacity, rutile is extensively used in the production of pigments. These pigments are critical in providing whiteness and opacity to products like paints, coatings, plastics, papers, and inks, enhancing their aesthetic and protective properties. Beyond pigmentation, rutile's photostable and UV-resistant characteristics make it valuable in sunscreen formulations, where it acts as a physical barrier to harmful UV rays. In the world of metallurgy, rutile is a primary source of titanium, used to manufacture titanium metal and titanium alloys. These materials are prized for their strength, light weight, and corrosion resistance, finding applications in aerospace, military, and medical implants. Moreover, titanium dioxide's photocatalytic properties are harnessed in environmental applications, such as air and water purification systems, where it helps in breaking down pollutants. Rutile's diverse range of applications, from enhancing everyday consumer products to playing a role in advanced technology, underscores its versatility and importance in various industries.
