Inner Light Crystals

Included Amethyst

These pages contain all our amethysts that contain inclusions within them.
Generally, the rule when working with included crystals is to know what each mineral is and what its attributes are, and to understand that the base energies of the crystal will be enhanced / adjusted accordingly.
Along with other members of the quartz family, it is possible to find amethyst with various inclusions:
Many amethyst crystals have small black spots within them or just below their surface: these are likely to be iron deposits, which over time might have developed into cacoxenite;
Some have small white snowballs in/on them: these are likely to be okenite;
Some exhibit what appears to be rutilation - however, this is not likely to be true rutile: if it is golden and "tufted" then it is probably cacoxenite; if it is deep purple/black, then it is more likely to be goethite.
Other inclusions might be: hematite (usually small silvery metallic flecks or spots); lepidocrocite (usually small red or orange flecks or spots); phantom inclusions (more commonly exhibiting "layers" of clear, milky or smoky quartz - or more rarely citrine); air or water inclusions, resulting in skeletal layering and/or enhydro formation (these are rare and very sought after crystals!)
