Rutilated Quartz Yad
A Yad is used by the reader to follow the text during the Torah reading from the parchment Torah scrolls. The Yad ensures that the parchment is not touched during the reading because it is often-fragile and is easily damaged.
This exquisite Yad is fabricated from pewter, brass and rutilated quartz. It bends at the tip as a knuckle might. Perfect size for an adult reader. Can be special ordered with a chain. Call for quotes!
Rutilated Quartz: A variety of quartz with inclusions of rutile crystals, which are minerals that sometimes appear in a needle-like fashion in a reddish-brown to red and sometimes yellowish appearance.
