Rutile needles can be reddish, golden, silvery, or on very rare occasions, greenish. These are said to be beneficial for food disorders, the immune system, regeneration of tissue, fatigue, depression, respiratory illness, stability of all physical systems and general health, and absorption of nutrients from food. They are a good energy move, helping flow of energy along the meridians and very helpful in uncovering the causes of mental issues and hang-ups. They are reputed to diminishe fear and are excellent at assisting with decision-making processes. They ease loneliness and relieve guilt, stabilise emotional and mental processes, clarifying thought patterns and emotional reactions.
