Golden rutile quartz is rock crystal included (sometimes heavily) with golden rutile needles also known as 'Angel Hair'. Rutile (Titanium Dioxide) can come in a range of colours such as red, brown, green but the most prized is yellow which when inside a quartz host rock it appears to be fine, straight golden hairs hence it carries the name Angel Hair.
