Smoky Quartz with fluid inclusions
Rare Smoky Quartz specimens with fluid inclusions - these are commonly sold as enhydro Quartz.
What is a fluid inclusion? A small cavity filled with water or other liquid inside a stone or crystal piece. It may have a bubble or two, or some other material inside. In these pieces, the fluid inclusions are quite small, and only have a small amount of movement. Don't imagine a large bubble moving around, unfortunately.
This is different from an enhydro specimen - which is a rock with porous walls into which water may have seeped recently. Fluid inclusions are ancient.
The best way to view these inclusions is to place the crystal directly in front of a bright light source and move it around very slowly.
While these pieces are relatively clear, they can also be quite included - cloudy too. They are also sometimes dual terminated crystals.
#1: 73 grams, 63x39x30MM - a nice piece from Brazil, with a two phase inclusion of liquid and gas.
