NOVO HORIZONTE, BAHIA

Village located in the State of Bahia, 580 kilometers away from the capital Salvador.
Its estimated population is 7,639 inhabitants. However, Novo Horizonte has a huge floating population, almost the double, due to the mining of rutile quartz, where a single stone may claim thousands of dollars, which attracts many people in search of fortune.

RUTILATED QUARTZ

Chemical composition: Titanium oxide (rutile) included in quartz (silicon dioxide)
Hardness: 4 (rutile) and 7 (quartz)
Rutile is mostly found as an inclusion, rarely found as a separate mineral.
