These pages contain all minerals - mostly minerals of the quartz family, or those that have quartz aspects within them - that have inclusions within them. Please bear in mind that it is not always easy to identify inclusions within a mineral unless you are an experienced mineralogist and can examine a specimen under a microscope or break it down and test it in the laboratory. Most items in this section have either been identified by the wholesaler/mine as being a particular mineral or examined by us, using our experience of the forms in which specific inclusions are found. Accordingly all descriptions are given in good faith, but the exact nature of any inclusion can not be guaranteed. Esoterically, 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. Generally, when understanding the nature and attributes of included minerals, the base material supplies the primary resonance and the included material adds its own attributes to the mix. When the inclusions appear in any type of quartz they are also enhanced and amplified, making the combination more profound. The page headers within each of the sub-sections (where applicable) will supply information about the inclusion(s), to which the basic characteristics and uses of the base mineral (see their header page) will also apply. To read more about the different forms and formations of minerals and their uses, you may like to return to our main site and to the pages under the dropdown heading "Crystal Directories". .
